Same Age Sculptures
Made in collaboration with Michael Crowe
This series of sculptures were made when Michael Crowe and I were the exact same age. We produced each one blindfolded, removing aesthetic anxiety, emphasizing surprise and play. Michael, being older by 34 days made one a day, for 34 days. Then I began, and 34 days/sculptures later my first piece was coupled with Michael's first piece, second with second, etc.
Age is frequently used to compare what two people have accomplished, creating a winner and a loser. This work gently throttles that belittling system. The most interesting pair of sculptures will be cast in bronze.
