Artist statement about
"This Is How We Play Now"
*I wanted to create a piece that would be about our social, political and environmental interaction, and specifically an American conversation.
'This Is How We Play Now is composed using studded baseballs, some of which are embedded in walls. In this piece, the American pastime has become a dangerous, Dada-esque object.
*It represents our concurrent interaction, that being social, political, environmental.
*There is a subculture context to this work. The desire to touch or use these sculptures functionally versus- collecting and viewing as an artwork. This is the roll of intention behind my work. The artwork is purchased as art but is also intended to be physically used if that is the collector's intention."
