My visual language is small, handheld sized, figurative sculptures constructed from fabric. They are very tactile objects yet few people ever get to touch them. So I want to explore how I can communicate the making process and the physicality of the materials.
Below are a series of photographs and diagrams from a piece titled ‘Distain of Youth’.
