White Marble



"A theme throughout my work is the juxtaposition of

the historical use of marble

to portray the ideal form, and my use of marble showing


By non-form, I mean an object that is common among us, but is never looked at as a form; not appreciated. Just taken for granted. Something Baudrillard-like happens in that moment, because now there is this beautiful thing, divorced from all context, that was created in that instant. It still looks like all the others, but now bears no relation to the others and stands utterly alone.
