Learn from History, or Repeat It
There are incidents too horrible to sweep under the rug. In response, I build sculptures to honor those harmed. The sculpture also marks, or holds responsible those who perpetrated the horrible incident. Finally, the sculpture encompasses the viewer or by-stander who, whether knowing or unknowing, whether passive or active, is also deeply impacted by the horrible incident.
Here my sculptures take a figurative form. Trayvon represents those who have had their sons stolen. Witness, sculpted in reaction to the Newtown massacre, deals with the mind-boggling access to assault weapons in this country. Fakhra represents the women who have become acid victims.
