Learn from History, or Repeat It
There are incidents too humanly horrible to sweep under the rug. In response to these, I build sculptures that honor those harmed, lest we forget them. 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. ALIEN represents the immigrant in the Trump era.
