STANDING (2011-16)

The Standing series, comprised of six figures, spanning a five year period, delved into the notion of in-between states emotionally and physically. The naked figures seem to be in a state of fright, agitation or expectancy – on the verge of a breakthrough or breakdown. “One Step Forward” reflects the fierce determination involved in taking a step into unchartered territory. The other sculptures evoke both internal and external states—from waiting expectantly for something to happen as is the case with “Standing-by”, to reflecting on former versions of oneself in “I’m Still Here”.
