Hairscape Wall Installation, 2010
Charcoal, acrylic, fabric and wire, Dimensions Variable
This body of work is profoundly influenced by its architectural space. The Hairscape Wall Intervention included the sculptural addition of leaves cut from canvass, drawn with charcoal, and shaped with wire. This work takes shape within different architectural spaces that are reinterpreted by drawing, painting, and adding sculptural elements directly on the wall. Unlike traditional murals, these Wall Interventions challenge some of the spatial boundaries of art.
I am interested in art's relationship with the architecture around us, and I am powerfully moved by art's capacity to transform an urban environment. My artwork often has an element of whimsy to it. This work playfully engages with the space, creating a sense of wonder and reshaping architectural space.
