It all started with a horse named Piero that used to walk past my window while working in my studio. I had just returned to making sculptures and was inspired to begin sculpting animals in my surroundings.
The Chickens, the fast moving and awkward looking creatures, challenged my understanding of proportion and anatomy. The process of “making it” challenged my patience. I would like to call this very personal installation, that was created during a time of loss: Live, Life with Love.
I read once, that rabbits are said to be “courageous and playful animals, in the face of death.” And that the Asian moon rabbit is depicted mixing an elixir. I set out to capture different characters and stages of life in each one of my jackrabbit sculptures.
Before I create a sculpture I sketch it over and over.
The following examples are watercolor drawings that I drew in a hotel room in Clarksvill Tennessee. Each day I drew a different fruit from the breakfast buffet.
With my installations I want to provoke and invite to think and rethink, our place in society.
