Presences a series of sculptures in cast paper suggest sentinel-like scrolls. The expressive surfaces are layered and striated evoking ruins, erosion and the passage of time. With their formal bearing, these works are a persistent presence, like the essences of persons that remain in our memory although no longer in our lives.
These are wall sculptures cast of paper fibers and pigment forced through bamboo slats; a method developed during a residency in Japan. The edge of the paper may be torn or charred, and the surface rubbed with encaustic to create luminosity and depth.
