 photo 5241808_orig_zps0fbb7bf1.jpg " Wandering. Looking for something to follow. Hoping to find something to prove that everything is profoundly meaningful. Some sort of singular theory of life. In this quest, I seem only to stumble upon the inconsequential things. An annoyance, some confusion, a mistake that takes a long time to clean up, a stubbed toe, a dirty dish, hair—all of the little things that pile up until it becomes clear that the passage of time has been present only in the form of passing distractions. Maybe there is some meaning, but it seems to be an illusion that only luck may one day unveil. It can be difficult to remain interested, excited, engaged, and true to oneself amidst the backdrop of routine, everyday life. My most recent work is about personal fantasy and escape amidst everyday experience. It is a reimagining of everyday life, based on often small, seemingly insignificant frustrations. A playful rumination on the little things, the subtleties, which can fill our lives for better or worse. Growths of the seeds of worry, fear, amusement, and minor upsets. Fruitless daydreams. It is about what a mind does with what it is given." - Jennifer Cronin  photo 1821594_orig_zps3d5b5456.jpg  photo 8055511_orig_zps9e14c5e6.jpg

The work is inspired by the cult of beauty in contemporary mass media. Intricately painted, decorative interiors are invented to titillate the viewer." - Karen Ann Myers  photo rainbows-and-diamonds-web_zps04e93bf0.png  photo kam_hr_netflix_zpsf4611ec4.jpg  photo 1006ab01da6869370ea7099109f28466_photo1_uga_zpsc6402d1b.png

I create abstract, unidentifiable objects that evoke or depict a sense of the transient through the creative and constructive process and the overall sculptural form. I am interested in the evocative and emotive qualities of colour and its potential to direct and inform the viewer’s understanding of the work. I often consider the materiality of colour: the superficial qualities of applied surfaces verses colour that is intrinsic to the material itself and solid throughout. Sculpture defines a direct physical relationship between the viewer and the objects that they encounter and a conscious use of scale reaffirms that relationship. I make work that is relatable to the human body in scale to reinforce the physicality of material within my work." - Derrick Piens  photo 700x01_zpsb82a1e44.jpg  photo 700x03_zps93050ec6.jpg
