art boxes

The art boxes allow me to explore ideas of enclosure and privacy. Resin and concrete are versatile materials and allow experimentation. As a building material, concrete can connote the impersonal while also speaking to comfort, stability and permanence. Resin gives delicate items protection but also separates us from them. We can hold a small space in our hands, but only occupy it through our imagination.

The stereo photos help share these enclosure ideas.
