Notes About Braids

 

Some of these works approach the realm of eccentric abstraction and are usually intimate in nature, sometimes erotic. Over the years, with a nod to Surrealism, I’ve worked with forms that convey both male and female qualities.

 

I scavenge. And even when not, as I walk down a street, I’m aware of objects set aside. Chairs abound. I’ve carried many home for more than a few miles.

 

The braids impose a presence onto the found objects. They sometimes reflect back a sense of isolation and absence. These anthropomorphized Braids elicit issues of intimacy: desire, fear, trust. Acts of faith. Trusting chairs.
