untitled (bones & carapaces)

My current body of work, untitled (bones & carapaces), consists of sculptures constructed of layers of wooden blocks forming improbable biological and geological-like growths. The forms lie in the space between familiarity and abstraction with allusions to bone-like objects and other left-behind structural components of a body. The construction method of each sculpture aligns with geology and how nature organizes space. The blocks that make up the work are arranged on a grid evocative of the molecular formations of minerals and cells as well as the layout of maps and digital pixels. While each object is initiated individually, I don’t consider them independent of one another, but more as interdependent parts of past thought and memory that have solidified while continuing to grow.
