Equally strong opposition and anger

Soft Sculpture; Wool (knitting), clear varnish, found shoes, found curtain rod; 200cm x 121cm x 61cm; 2013-2014.

Equally strong opposition and anger plays with gender stereotypes by using color, materials and the presence of craft (knitting) to invoke a feminine presence. I like to play with and subvert material expectations by exaggerating and reversing those qualities. What appears to be soft and weak (knitted wool) is made hard and strong. Through material gesture and form, I give these minimal objects an identity by creating the impression of an absent figure. These soft sculptures are based on the stories we leave behind, the marks we make on other people and our environments, the impact of daily living.
