Art Description

Sculpture: Wood on Wood.

Size: 27 H x 34 W x 23 in

For me, the house is a form laden with psychological meaning and transformative power. These houses confront the memories of my childhood home whose orderly Federal style facade concealed a chaotic interior. In Memory, Preserved the attempt to erase the past thru ritualistic burning becomes an act of preservation via the traditional Japanese process called Shou-sugi-ban.
