Plate 1Squiggly Plate (no title yet...)
(Intended display of Unequal - plates side by side)
To Have or Have Not (Installation)
Exploring different arrangements....
Hello everyone! A lot of these images are works in progress. Nonetheless, it would be helpful to have your feedback.
I use the plate forms to "frame" their contents and tell a story. "Plate 1" (untitled) will have gold luster painted inside the ball that has been cut to reveal the interior. "Squiggly Plate" is particularly interesting to me as I am moving the forms off the plate. I imagine the creation of a whole army of forms wanting to get onto a plate (which excites me because I love making multiples)!
"Unequal" carries out my original intent in throwing plates that look alike. By setting two similar plates next to each other, I wanted the viewer to be aware of the difference in serving size (or to be able to look at a freshly presented plate in comparison with one that shows traces of a meal).
"To Have or Have Not": These photos show different arrangements of an installation piece. I am still trying to figure out the spacing. I have a thought about putting the bowl full of knot-like forms near the edge of the table and stringing together the pieces so that they look like they are spilling over the edge. What arrangements do you care for the most/least?
I am using food as a metaphor for the feelings of fullness or emptiness that one can experience in his/her relationships with other people.
