Loveseat 1
Wood, waxed string
32″ x 32″ x 20″
2004
The Loveseat series began with the discovery of several wooden kitchen chairs in a dumpster. I rearranged and distorted the familiar forms, using simple methods and introducing intimate materials, such as leather, hide, hair and sinew, to suggest familial, intimate, and/or dysfunctional relationships between their implied occupants. Their manipulation has been guided by a desire to evoke the experience of individuality and conformity, strength and frailty, connection and isolation, and the experience of pleasure and pain.
