Connections (2013), is a collection of six individual mixed media pieces composite of wood, glass and black & white painted illustrations measuring 8.5" X 7" X 3". I created
the piece to visually remove the individual's identity and replace it with the viewers association of people.

 

We associate a person's identity in a variety of ways, gender, race/ethnicity, status/class, nationality, age, and any other number of possible groupings. The Connection piece removes these groupings, challenging the individual viewer to utilize their own unique concepts of identity.

 

The textured glass and an accurate calculated placement within the enclosure provides
an optimum subdued subject matter that changes with the viewer's spatial relationship inside the gallery. The pieces utilized old distressed textured glass obtained from the
1903 Cliftex textile manufacturing mill in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
