Have just finished a set of small works that will be finding their way to Halifax shortly. I will be sending them to Love, ME – so if you’re in Halifax, check them out in the next while.
This little collection is called keys and small things. It is literally “little” as a series: each piece is no more than 4″ x 4″ unframed. As I was making this work, I realized that each piece was really an articulation of those small gestures each of us makes in our lives – ways of acknowledging or being open to different ways of seeing ourselves and our lives. These ‘keys’ can both open and close, provide or deny access to things … .
Perhaps this is part of the fascination old keys have for so many people, myself included; they embody so much mystery and ambiguity in their thing-ness.
A selection of the work from the series, below – hope you enjoy.
Daisy, 3″ x 4″ unframed.
Scale, 3″ x 4″ unframed.
