Nexus Series

 

The subject and form of the masks attract attention in their engaging facial expressions and the incorporation of cultural influences. Using recognizable components, a certain bond is created as the viewer relates to the individual details. The components are stripped away from their original function and are viewed for their aesthetic merit. The integration of recycled wooden chairs and table legs reinforces the recycling theme as well as creating a visual contrast between the warm qualities of wood and the cold metal. The sculptures invokes a broad appeal since the components are used from a cross-section of our society.
