Assemblage Sculpture

The mixed media assemblage sculptures
on this page are from a series titled
"Reliquaries for the 21st Century".

"The chair is the reliquary, or shrine, for the
objects displayed on it. The character of
the particular chair adds a specific meaning
to each piece. The things I choose are
usually not altered except as combined
with other objects. Some of the pieces are
relics of unknown former owners. Others
evoke a place, or a moment in time, and
several make direct reference to art history.
Early in the series I found it interesting to
take the chair out of the context of daily
use, in most cases by hanging it on the
wall, much like the Shakers."
