Clay Figures

Between
Heaven & Earth

This tableau consists of cast-iron miniature figures clothed in plaster “fashion”. In material terms, the iron will rust and these pieces will change, or transform over time. Like the fashion the nature of the  material itself is fugitive.

This is a subtle and fashionable look at a time when we don’t give a rat’s ass about anything but shopping. This is about things that effect everybody. Life, culture, money, race. The ‘doll’ scale makes it comfortable to talk about through fashion.
