Description
Since 2004 working with cup form abstractions consistently resurfaces in my studio. The series moves in waves of activity each body presented with various titles starting with Rigmarole then Glyphs, Shift and Backjumps to name some. The genesis and motivations located in this work spring from my interest in altering the plastic state of thrown clay forms, the transformation/translation of various two dimensional graphic conventions for representing clouds and the overriding interest in the playful improvised moves of distortion and invention I characterize and internalize from the world of hip hop, specifically graffiti art.
