“Representations of Figures” and “Figures on a Scarred Earth”, best describes my use of materials. The imagery began with a drawing of three contrappostro figures. Each of the figures appears to be impregnated with an ovoid egg form. From the drawing, I created a three-dimensional file, which allowed a computer to print the sculpture. The sculpture file from the corresponding drawing was also used to create the form seen in the photographic-aerial image. When the two works are displayed together, the sculpture appears to be pulled directly out of the documentary photo. This effect sets the sculpture out, available for the observer to examine it in the round. The guiding force in deciding to use three-dimensional printing technology and plastic materials for the sculpture is purposely metaphoric and mordant.
