Variations on Listening (Series)
In an ongoing series of works, I have become obsessed with using doll push molds to create hundreds of tiny ears out of clay. I find the repetitive process of using these molds very meditative. It allows me to reflect on my body and not take it for granted. Philosopher Henri Lefebvre’s text, Rhythmanalysis, has inspired these pieces as he explains how the body is the first point of analysis when it comes to interpreting the myriad of rhythms that surround us (e.g. social, cultural, musical, biological, environmental).
This series of works are created using polymer clay, thread, and acrylic paint on wood panels. They range in size from 8"x8" to 60"x60".
