"Pyxis Awry 2020 (swell)", 12/2020, bronze, 6.5"h x20"w x10"d (17 x 51 x 25 cm)
awry 1 : in a turned or twisted position or direction: askew 2 : off the correct or expected course: amiss
The works in this series feature a “vessel” form - historically understood in art and literature as a
symbol or metaphor for the self, a group of people, human kind. If the vessel's compass is awry it will likely end up adrift, untethered, off course.
My intent with this series is raise questions/search for answers relative to personal (or a group) decisions or courses of action and
shed light on the resulting consequences, whether they are personal, political, environmental.
a slow, regular movement of the sea in rolling waves that do not break.
