GRAND STANDS

Small, quick, low-material-value clay sculptures perch uncomfortably on enormously elaborate plinths.  Ranging from a stock market projection chart, (A.M. 2010), plucked aggressively from 2 dimensions, to a suburban veneer goggle box desperately attempting to focus on itself,  (Norwood 2010), the tumble of crossing lines and angles, solid masses and filigree becomes a whirling distraction. It is because of this elaborate dance, this incessant jumping, that these small clay sculptures get away with the monstrous. Isolated from their scale, they become small yet mighty dictators, gleefully riding their platforms while controlling the space with which they interlock.
