These 18 - 24 inch tall sculptures are hybrids, imagined collaborations of , animal and plant life. They are constructed with armatures of plaster, screen, wire, clay, and concrete, then skinned with sheets of abaca paper, hand pulped for 7 hours in my studio.

Stripped of all cultural signifiers to the skin and bone, they are slow participants in a long parade, moving unencumbered in free space. They raise questions about our time on earth but provide no answers. I think of them as caught in a freeze frame.

Here we are, they seem to say, Look at us. What are we supposed to be doing together?
