I’ve been interested in the fragmentation of the figure for a long time. About a year ago, I was loading one of my life-sized figures into the kiln – part by part (it would later be glued together). Before I shut the kiln, I noticed how the parts looked, and snapped a photo of them intriguingly nestled together. I’m finally pursuing that moment. So far, here we are.
NCECA, as always, was wonderful. I had the opportunity to get critiques from a few professors. Their insights into my work were encouraging. Now, back to the studio to continue exploring new directions. I’ve posted a couple links about Roberto Lugo, one of this year’s Emerging Artists. He’s a tremendously inspiring, artist-activist.
In the meantime, I have a new piece showing at Carnegie Craft from April 4 – 26. The opening is on Friday April 10, 7 – 9:30pm.
