"Pyxis Awry 10-20", 10/2020, bronze, 2.5"h x10"w x7"d (6.3 x 25x 18cm)

available

Pyxis is a small and faint constellation in the southern sky. Its name is Latin for a mariner's compass   Pyxis is completely visible in latitudes south of 53 degrees north from January through March.

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.
