Sometimes the indication of a change in political or social attitudes comes in direct messages from politicians, public figures, or news reports in the media. Other times, that indication can be less direct. It can come in the form of a feeling, a sense that there is something “in the air”. A feeling, inexplicable as to exactly what it might mean, but felt with clarity and confidence.

It is in this moment of recognition before a phenomena is analyzed and understood that my current work is exploring. Recognizing that something is happening, but uncertain as to whether that feeling is beginning, or ending, leading to a positive change, or potentially threatening.

Whether the movement and the sensation of change come in the form of expanding, contracting, growing, or pushing, my current body of sculpture tries to connect with the moment of recognition, when it is clear, something is happening, just what it is that is happening however, is unresolved.
