Never Odd or Even, installation view, 2010

(MDF, wood, graphite, mirror, acrylic paint, found objects)

The works in this show include a series of objects that range from the vaguely to the eerily familiar. Continuing my interest in material game-playing and the double-take, I reinterpret the replica with several degrees of verisimilitude, with either highly detailed, reductive or slightly distorted sculpted replicas of everyday objects. An experiment with the edge between representation and abstraction, the varied approached in replication creates a disorienting environment which challenges the viewer to negotiate between the perceived and the actual.

(wood, graphite, MDF, mirror), 2010

The burnt matches (carved pine with graphite) on top of the cardboard boxes (made of mdf) are "scattered" symmetrically on either side of the mirror. When walking around the work, the matches disappear into their reflected counterparts creating a disorienting effect, and calling the materiality of the mirror into question. The mirror can easily be mistaken as glass by the viewer.
