Sculpture, variety of papers, palm fronds, cane

Stasis: a period or state of inactivity or equilibrium. Originating from my interest in paper and natural materials, Stasis developed from re-purposed, found plant matter. Dormant hollow shells of discarded palm frondage and debris that awaited rebirth into delicately balanced forms in equilibrium. Forms that took on a life of their own; passive and inactive one moment, balanced, stable and appearingly in motion the next. Materials and form working together to awaken an inner life.
