DUPLICATE. steel 2014
The teardrop shape first made its appearance in the paintings and drawings. I am now making attempts to utilize the drop shape in my sculpture-transforming the teardrop that is by nature an ephemeral/unattainable object. The tear or water drop cannot be had. It is born in one minute and gone in the next. We are unable to possess it, much less name it. The investigations in my sculptures are to depict the teardrop as a permanent and physically solid form caught in a suspended state of animation/action. I am striving for the sculpture to hold both a weighty presence and simultaneously feel delicate and "drop-like"
