"PYXIS AWRY 2021 (plunge -blackbuck II)", 2/2021, bronze, "7.5h x18"w x8"d (19h x 46w x 20d 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.
Black Buck Antelope
Last part of the sub-title derives from the cast bronze section
of black buck antelope horn used in this peice.
