Introducing my first solo exhibit at Boston Sculptors Gallery June 19 through August 4, 2013. The show, Your Statement is Inside, will showcase my woven and felted silk, wool and steel sculptures that correlate with outdoor public art installation, the Lighthouse, for the group show Convergence, situated on the Christian Science Plaza in Boston, Massachusetts.
For these two shows I collected raw wool from New England farms, which then were woven and felted into sculptural forms. One piece titled Penelope’s Sail, is made from silk and merino wool and then used in Double Edge Theatre’s summer production of The Odyssey, where I collaborates on set design. Night after night Penelope (Odysseus’ wife, played by Hannah Jarrell) and the wind and rain opened the felt into a beautiful lacy material. I then worked it into what I believe Penelope’s sail would look like if she ever had made one to sail away from Ithaka.
Another piece, Untitled (5x5), a 5x5 foot steel and wool cube, continues my aesthetic of The Lighthouse by mixing elements of light, and urban and rural materials inside the gallery.
