Child’s Play (p.o.w. series)
This body of work explores the notions of permanence/impermanence, materials/memories, and deterioration/resurrection. The materials used are excavated from the artists’ cupboards, threads from a child's blanket, toys, photos, rubbings, charred 4th of July sparklers, letters sent from a war. These are the physical vestiges gleaned to be reimagined in sculptural form referencing the artist as a child growing up with a prisoner of war.
