Common Thread

Common Thread

SOLD. This piece is 18" x 24" wide and approx. 3-5 inches deep including the Claybord panel. This piece is to commemorate the history of the south and Black history in the U.S. The fight against oppression, any oppression, has a common thread from one time and place to another. the splitting of the book represents the split of the North and South; and the ideological conflict that knows no chronological and geographical boundaries. The figures are attached and they are made of polymer clay. As a reminder, I only use books that people have thrown away and let them inspire me.

Contemplating Justice

Contemplating Justice

NOT AVAILABLE. Made with clay, thread, and book cut and folded. The open book is by Dr. Mehmet Oz. The open page is on the sense of sight. Justice is traditionally portrayed as blind or at least blindfolded. The topic of the open page serves my purpose well here because I believe that justice is not blind. In fact, it is discriminatory. One has to open his/her eye to see this fact. There is a peg under the figure. The books are securely mounted on a 18"x24"x2" museum quality Clayboard. Wall hanging. All ready; wire at the back. Signed and dated by me. 2013. Dimension: 24" wide x 18" tall x 9" deep (roughly). This is an oversized pieced and it requires special handling and packing.
