white marble sculpture of an egg carton. 2010.



Black Marble



"The execution in marble also serves to prove I have studied

this non-formal thing formally, and convinces the viewer to

now see this thing that was basically invisible before."

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.
