About This Project

CRISIS is a nod to motherhood as the infant has a constant need of a constant food source. Each plaster bottle nipple was cast in plaster and then dipped in molten wax and allowed to cool. Each nipple is affixed to the frame with a wire loop. The juxtaposition of the soft wax with the repetition of the nipples create a textural carpet. From a distance, the sculpture just looks like white shag rug but upon closer examination, the playfulness of the actual forms emerge. Accumulation struggling to become a thing, an object, a monument to the process is realized in a sculpture referencing minimalist white canvases.
