This Vestment Collection are sculptural paper assemblages in the form of clothing, richly layered with torn texts, prayers, music, film fragments, historical documents or broken bits of our treasured past infused with personal and collective memory.
Each piece is oddly reminiscent, exquisitely evocative piece has been handcrafted to speak to each of us on a uniquely personal level, connecting with our multi-layered identities, transcending culture, religion, history and geography.
Why clothing? It allows us an intimacy and familiarity between the artwork and you the viewer.
I am drawn to the implied gesture, the sense of movement and immediacy as though they were just worn and still warm.
Why old items? Having lost both of my parents, I realize that so much of our memory is in things which are of no interest to our children.
Yet, how can we throw away old love letters, photographs, film or our grandparents immigration papers?
Thru my work, I preserve the dignity and emotional value of these items, saving them from being otherwise discarded into landfill.
There is beauty in the broken pieces, books, jewellery and bits of our past. There is beauty when that which is torn is mended.
And there is beauty still, in remembering and reimagining meaningful fragments in ways that refresh our spirit!
Each original sculpture is mounted on a linen fabric stretched over an acid free foam board and a wooden stretcher frame.
A custom shadow box is then constructed from plexiglass, mounted over the entire frame and tastefully drilled from the sides to protect the work.
The wood stretcher behind is outfitted with heavy duty D strap hangers and comes with mounting hardware to make your life easy.
You just have to decide where to hang it!
Each piece is accompanied with artist biography to include with your home insurance
and a special kit to clean and properly care for the plexiglass frame.
I had a fine art gallery for 20 years and know that choosing and purchasing artworks can be challenging at the best of times.
Images on a website can be great, but I understand sometimes we need more than that to help make that final decision, right?
My art is so unusual, being dimensional, sculpted with papers and layered with meaning. They are best appreciated live as you move around the piece, so let's do just that!
CONTACT ME to set up a video call to virtually meet, walk around and talk about the piece. This is a great way for you to really get that gallery experience in the comfort of your own home, speak to the artist directly and be confident in the piece you are purchasing!
