2D Mixed Media
We create lightweight concrete sculpture and wall sculpture with various surface textures, treatments and pigments. The work may incorporate hand-cut glass, found objects, encaustic, handmade paper, concrete stains and/or plant material. Themes are frequently architectural, exploring our relationship to the built environment and the feelings of belonging or alienation which can arise from perceptions of place. All work is cast in a unique, hand-made form. Texture is created in the form before the lightweight concrete is cast. We use a recycled styrofoam aggregate, which makes the work significantly lighter and locks the styrofoam up inside a piece of art, keeping it out of the landfill. Color is added after the piece has cured. We use various concrete stains and pigments, and/or encaustic.
