Work: Critical Mass
Dimensions: 17’ x 22’, hands: 5” x 3”
Materials: Wax
Year: 2008

My current work responds to repression. The mind can only be controlled for so long before a critical moment is reached, when memory or impulse must be released through repetitive process in the studio. Hands pour wax obsessively, as internal fear and anxiety become external manifestations. Liquid becomes solid, as the multitudes of hands fill the enclosed space of the gallery, producing a psychological space where viewer becomes voyeur. That which has been ignored is now confronted.
