  Filament   1984   ashes   life sized silhouette

This work was composed of ashes placed on the gallery floor in the form of a human silhouette. The material itself had a strong sense of content for me. Its minimum of mass, its record of a changing state of matter, its implied history of conflagration, its delicacy and easy dispersal into the environment (in fact the piece was largely dispersed at the opening reception and had to be reconstituted several times during the exhibition) all speak of the mass, space, time continuum that is the sculptors world.

The photos are from the exhibition "Images of Violence" at Detroit Focus Gallery, Detroit, Michigan.
