Untitled Series

Untitled Series, braided cotton cord of various size, steel, dimensions variable

Untitled Series explores knotting techniques as a type of connective drawing device, creating structure and defining space. It is a transformative technique combining the reedy and slack with volume and shape. The performative, repetitive nature of the technique imbues an element of time as much as it speaks of space and volume. The incorporation of egalitarian material, such as rope and steel, renders the work large-scale, suggesting strength, machinery, and industry. The result is a series of sculptures rendered through a combination of industrial versus domestic and tradition versus modern.
