"View from the Easel" in Hyperallergic

"View from the Easel" in Hyperallergic
My studio is at Project for Empty Space in Newark, New Jersey. Recently I have been reworking old forms to make new sculptures. The old forms are made from canvas and stuffing, usually wired and sewn together. I rework these forms, cover them with bright colors of fabric, and then sew the different forms together. A finished sculpture may have gone through many incarnations.
The smaller works in the foreground represent a home under construction. Dad is talking on his cell phone, Mom is relaxing on the couch, a gay pride flag flies outside, a child is sleeping in a different room and a cat strides through the house amidst works of art. All of these pieces can be wrapped up and snapped together within the white rectangle they are placed on, to make it a traveling home.
The canvas rectangles with drawings, that are hung on the wall, are sewn drawings that I am working on. I take photographs from my home neighborhood or of downtown Newark and work from the photographs to make drawings on the canvas. I then use both pencil and thread to complete these sewn drawings. These sewn works are a slow process and may take weeks to complete.
