REMAINS 2, 2017.
Porcelain coated animal bone, glaze & gold lustre. Individual average: 21.5 X 10.5 X 8.5cm. 2017.
Remains 2 is a continuation of my ongoing series, Remains, which began in 2014. These pieces from 2017 exhibit the development and refinement of an experimental making process, which acts as an outlet for larger scale, much more literal projects. While inviting individualized, metaphorical interpretation, the works personally offer an avenue for testing and better competency surrounding important materials to my practice (porcelain, bone & gold lustre).
In a broad sense and especially with this latest set of Remains, I hope for the work to speak of the delicate nature of life, alongside concepts of resilience and legacy, while also continuing an ongoing investigation of visually representing commemorative practices, reverence, preservation and memory.
