Porcelain coated animal bone, glaze, gold lustre. Variable dimensions, 2018.
Ceremony continues from an incremental series, Remains, spanning from 2014 - 2017. These pieces exhibit the development of an experimental making process and ultimately encourage individualized, metaphorical interpretation.
In a broad sense, Ceremony explores traditions of preservation, commemoration and honorary material use while also investigating concepts of resilience, permanence and memorialization. The refinement of these ideas alongside the material-based experiments of series’ such as Ceremony inform larger scale, literal projects, which are the primary focus of my art practice.
