Inside the Box (The Artists' Gallery Annual Box Show )

An invitation to participate in The Artists' Gallery annual box show got me experimenting "inside the box". My invitation came with a 6 inch pine box that I could work with in any way I wished. This is an image of the first day.

When I saw the box I thought about shelter. I went about recreating(at 50% scale) an earlier sculpture that was about a different type of shelter. I've been curious about placing the paper people inside a structure - this gave me the opportunity to play around with that idea.

Well, it was a busy week around here and I didn't finish painting my outer walls. I missed the deadline by about 12 hours, but I'm thankful for the nudge to try something new. I look forward to doing it again next year.

  1. i often run right up against deadlines like this--and then am curiously grateful to have more time to complete the work to my satisfaction.

    this is a moving little tableau. the figure stretched across the kitchen table to reach the other's hand makes me think of the intimacy of home, how we can sort of fall apart there--and how, in turn, our very family are sometimes the one to make us fall apart!
