Wood, waxed string
32" x 32" x 20"
The Loveseat series began with the discovery
of several wooden kitchen chairs in a dumpster. I rearranged
and distorted the familiar forms, using simple methods and introducing
intimate materials, such as leather, hide, hair and sinew, to
suggest familial, intimate, and/or dysfunctional relationships
between their implied occupants. Their manipulation has been
guided by a desire to evoke the experience of individuality
and conformity, strength and frailty, connection and isolation,
and the experience of pleasure and pain.
