SITuations

STATEMENT

My figurative clay and steel sculptures are all about humans being. I am fascinated by the world’s family brimming with mystery, diversity, individuality and universality. My sculptures create a fellowship and dialogue between human form and spirit and what I believe is humankind’s most powerful global language – the voice of the body. SITuations zooms in on locations and circumstances surrounding or affecting human beings. These acts, events and conditions are continuations of my sculptural essays on the epic puzzle of human conduct.  My lighthearted interpretations of situations feature a humorous hodgepodge of body types, postures, activities, attitudes and behaviors which create casual and amiable parodies.  The sculptures are topped off with titles inspired by a frequent use of puns which append a twist or spice to a humdrum happening. SITuations spanned from 2007-2010.
