These vertical structures, all at least 5-6 feet tall, are related to self control and power. It is a form that I use in a similar function of words, I think of them as pathways to and from my thoughts about the people in my life. Inspiration for my work comes directly from specific situations and relationships I have had with others. A part of my artistic goal is to have viewer embark on the same journey, to reflect closely on their lives and the people around them.
The smaller boxes are a continuation of my Illusions of Change collection. I wanted to create an object that further represented stillness and the relationship between verticality and space.They stand as a symbol of my feelings about control, containment, and loneliness as well as another form that stresses the necessity of contemplation.
