L.I.C. (Lovely Infrastructure Capriccio)
My artmaking revolves around the power of miniatureforms to act as symbolic landscapes. Influenced by theheightened ornamentation of Middle Eastern craft, Irevel in the seductive beauty and power of detail, andits potential to create metaphoric and poetic meaning. I construct hundreds of handcrafted sculptures thatsuperficially resemble everyday objects such as jewelry or candy, but trigger a wide range of associations, both personal and cultural. The hierarchical arrangements of these miniatures suggests architectural models of public plazas, but their petitscale and unheroic forms subtly mock the notion of monumental sculpture.
