One A Day Compositions

These are quick compositions which I have begun to do on a daily basis. The small sculptural studies are intended to be quick (less than an hour) assemblages, using materials that happen to be around or accumulated in the course of that day. Though there are no strict rules that state they must be small and assemblages, I forsee that trend. So far I have just been using up materials around the house or refuse on the street. This is a good way of working because it uses spontaneity with the materials as well as the design of the compositions.

Holiday Pins

One lapel pin and four brooches made as Christmas gifts for family members.
Brooches are a combination of enamel copper and bronze approximately 3 .25" in length. The lapel pin is Nickel, approximately .75" in length. The imagery on the lapel pin is a thunderbird, reminiscent of petroglyphs located near my home town. The Brooches are variations on a graphic representation of a barren winter tree branch.

Aloisius for BEAR

It has been a few months since the BEAR XL party has occurred but BEAR is still going strong.

I was asked to make a papier-mache modeled of the Aloicius sculpture that hangs in Munich During its Oktoberfest. My Original (hanging in the tent in the pic at the bottom) now hangs in the Hofbrauhaus in Pittsburgh PA.

The top picture is the second Aloicius, made of epoxy, foam and nylon. I was asked to construct this second Aloicius so that it would survive being passed down through the generations to come.

Compartment House

Bottom image is how the compartment was displayed during Protagonist/Antagonist. Viewers were encouraged to enter and explore. The living unit was achieved through condensing the floor plan of my one room apartment. An economical use of space was not my desire. I wanted to create a space that was on the verge of being too small yet livable. Through having all surfaces clad in masonite(with the exception of iconic forms defining the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom) I wanted the viewer to focus on their movement through space and consider their notions of home.
