CONNECTIONS SERIES

2020 - 2021

Cedar, poplar, light

Residency work

Northfield, MN

This series is a product of hands on experimenting with bending wood. Using cedar and poplar, I devised two different methods to bend wood, with cedar, laminating milled pieces in a press, and with poplar, soaking and bending around free-form moulds. Each sculptural piece is designed to be modular, packing flat to transport, yet each able to span 100+ feet in assembled length.

During installation, this series becomes a site specific exploration of form, material the spatial conditions of the gallery. Each installation is different, and unique to the gallery’s scale, quality of light, layout, etc.
