Never Enough approx 6'ft tall
In our post 9/11 society, we have become ever more fearful. Security is our overriding concern. Never Enough takes this anxiety to far extremes, the head overflowing with embedded codes and every inch crammed with locks, holds, and clamps.
Security 70"h x 42"w
Security embodies our anxiety: a locked, clenched figure lost in a dark night of keys.
Fossil Skins 56”h x 45"h
First Apron Excavation 50”h x 33”w
Generational Fossil 46”h x 30”w
Witness to the Past #1, #2 & #3 life size
These aproned, human forms are based on the costume of an old Russian shaman. The upholstered white scissor sections represent the backbones, both denoting the actual skeletal structure and epitomizing lives of hard work. Wearing vintage aprons and quilt fragments, each Witness to the Past holds obsolete tools, suggesting the magical tool kits carried by shamans.
These figures guard our ancestral memories.
