Pearl Sauce, 2007. Rigid urethane foam, snow sleds, laundry hampers and aluminum, 60” x 48” x 30”.

Recently my sculptures have started to respond to the slick and saturated media of the world in which we live. They are reflections of myself, contradictory and impulsive. Carrying references to food, sex, and toxic sludge in their bright organic formations of foam, they are exacerbations of material excess and imperial gluttony. Pure carnival joy harmonizes unself-consciously with commodity culture. The sculptures’ chaotic exuberance demands the same attention as that paid to our marketed landscape.
