MIXED MEDIA INSTALLATION

“Under the Same Sun; Democratic Spaces,” Main Gallery, Index Art Center, Newark, NJ, 2017

Featuring cast glass oil can sculptures,  drawings, and bullet resistant glass pieces

The work is loosely related to the theme, “Guns, Gold, and Oil,” materials often associated with the colonial domination of peoples and nature, here used in the service of art. In other pieces, imaginary landscapes, AI, and poetic texts evoke attempts at a more collaborative relationship with nature. The poetic texts, like the bullet pieces, allude as well to the darkness haunting our own “democratic spaces.” Glass, light, and the play of shadow unite all these elements to create a space of reflection, literal and figurative, in which such contradictions can be contemplated. More details can be found in my artist statement.
