Stagger Left

 

 

 

My work investigates the humanity of war.  I have built a large-scale sculpture of a fractured helicopter, which is overrun with gestural figures. I work in roughhewn and handcrafted materials to explore factual and fantastical narratives of trauma: the degradation of humanity, aphorisms and the mind during wartime. This piece emerges from the intersection of my brother’s experience and my childhood fabrications; it interweaves film references and pop culture influences that were important to me growing up with a brother who left for the war when I was eight and recent stories that he has told me about his involvement with the United Nations and NATO scents 1994.
