Assemblages

 

A series of assemblages that contain elements of the incidental but in themselves are considered compositions.

Combining studies of the studio with my ever growing collection of materials. These works hover between the unexpressed but intended and the unintentionally expressed.

In some small way, each piece is left unfinished, somehow halting and expanding its potentiality.

This inclusion is important to expand the connection between studio and gallery, and open the chance elements of the work to questions, as well as questioning the nomination, and therefore value, of the pieces themselves.

These are individual objects that contain condensed questions, relating to the experience of this exploration, and the narrative at it's foundation.
