Figures, 2013 - ongoing
Air dry clay
The Figures series are representations of shells using a single coil. As the initiator of basic forms for communal gatherings (like cups, vases and plates), the coil materializes my vision of the simplified sculpture, the iconic object and as a symbol, the Caribbean souvenir in a non-satirical disposition. The shells also possess the qualities of being.
For this particular setting I slightly altered the original structure of the staircase to create a shelving unit. Figure No. 12 is a 12 shell sculptures by 12 shelves structure. Protective devices for either a living organism or a myth.
