“Metal coat hangers are burned red-hot, cooled and hammered into straight rods, then re-bent into various flat shapes. When two flat shapes, say a triangle or a square, are intersected, three-dimensional negative spaces are created, then plaster is used to fill some of the negative spaces to emphasize mass. For me, the tarnished, blackened and patinaed metal rods and flawed, blemished plaster with random oxidation stains evokes imperfection, aging and impermanence. In a synergy between the object and its context within space, these works offer an engagement with the physical world finding objecthood in the way color often locates emotion.”
