urban fossils xiv, xv

The Urban Fossil sculptures, inspired by classical geometry and human proportions, are formed through the curvature of two-dimensional planes. The work imagines an archeologist finding stately forms pocked with the tools and trash of everyday life. Pure ceramic pigments and an earthen palette evoke prehistory while the pressings of industrial waste elicit the flawed beauty of the contemporary moment. The series explores the themes of loss and stillness.
