Hand-Cut, Manipulated, and Sealed, Cosmetic Sponges Covered with Ink, Gouache, Pastel Pigment

The works from the “Amass Series” are large-scale undulating three-dimensional wall constructions.  Each piece is comprised of thousands of sensuous and soft, hand-cut miniature units of sealed foam that have been embellished with ink, gouache, and pastel pigment.  They are suggestive of artifacts from nature such as coral reefs, rock formations, and crystals, as well as ceremonial and ornate body adornments.  In addition, they are inspired by images of densely populated urban landscapes viewed from an aerial perspective, which in turn reveals an inherent awareness of existing tensions between mother-nature and constructed-nature.
