« BOMBAY CHINTZ »
Medium : Knotted-plastic-recycled cable sheathing , enamel paint, fishing net, velvet, and wire on wooden panel.
Description : Community project in Mumbai, where I worked with underworld recycling lords, women and children from the Slums to recreate British textile motifs that reflect chaos, pollution, and the unfortunate appeal of manmade materials. The plastic resembles candy !
Size : 40 inches diameter x 4 inches deep
Date : 2017

: « FAKE MUSSEL BED » Medium : Flattened, pierced, bent, painted bottle-caps sewn onto linen, then covered with resin and black diamond quartz, which covers a wooden base with black canvas and tennis balls. Description : « FAKE MUSSEL BED » is part of my Nature Morte series which expresses my fear that one day most nature will be man-made. Copies already infiltrate our daily lives; thus, we find faux rock, dress fake christmas trees, walk on synthetic grass, use chemically treated recomposed wood and ski on snow that doesn’t melt! This body of work focuses on nature and it’s mimicry. Using composite materials, I construct pieces that only upon slow and close inspection will the spectators realize that the materials are foreign to nature and that they have been tricked. Size : 50 inches High x 27 inches Wide x 4 inches Deep Date : 2017

« LIGHTNING »
Medium : Circular woven wall sculpture: Constructed out of discarded cables, extension cords, plastic coated wire, plugs, an aluminum hoop, and safety net.
Description : LIGHTNING, a sister piece to THUNDER, is a part of my “Unplugged” series that explores the intergenerational notion of play: past and present, investigating how different generations interpret play. But when Lightning joins Thunder and we lose power, our children play just like our grandparents played.

: « THUNDER »
Medium : Circular woven wall sculpture constructed of discarded cables, extension cords, plastic coated wire, plugs, an aluminum hoop, and safety net.
Description : THUNDER is part of my « Unplugged » series that explores the intergenerational notion of play: past and present, investigating how different generations interpret play. But when there is an electrical storm and we are « Unplugged », the difference in play is negligible.

Description : Suspended in the Ogunquit American Museum of Art’s garden, the Interactive Map of Emotions invites visitors to become participants by playing an artist’s game dealing with emotions, helping to map out our emotional moods, triggers, and actions.
