“Inching Forward” is a 2014 found object assemblage piece created specifically for the “ Artist Impressions Of The Mother “ exhibit at The Space May 10 and 11. Another FOA piece for the same show is in the works.
First shown in conjunction with a series of photographs, these found object assemblage sculptures were based on the global affects of an overly industrial, corrupt planet and its long-term affects on the innocent, especially the children.

Local ceramic artist Lynn Williams cast 25 replicas of the head in porcelain, which I hand-painted and combined with lamp parts and found objects. The sculptures were wired to illuminate and all 24 pieces were exhibited at Rococo Gallery in […]
