Pearl Sauce, 2007. Rigid urethane foam, snow sleds, laundry hampers and aluminum, 60” x 48” x 30”.
Recently my sculptures have started to respond
to the slick and saturated media of the world in
which we live. They are reflections of myself, contradictory
and impulsive. Carrying references to
food, sex, and toxic sludge in their bright organic
formations of foam, they are exacerbations of
material excess and imperial gluttony. Pure carnival
joy harmonizes unself-consciously with commodity
culture. The sculptures’ chaotic exuberance
demands the same attention as that paid to
our marketed landscape.
