This series of sculptures has been evolving since early 2020 during the pandemic when my mind was both attuned to the world-wide crisis and focusing inward as the studio became one of the few places that seemed stable. I began looking intentionally and closely at the landscape of this small spot in the woods of Massachusetts where I live and work, recording with drawings and notes the incremental environmental changes that accumulate into weeks, months, and years, in an attempt to not take any bit of time for granted. These sculptures are the distillation of those drawings and notes. They are built from the ground up in one continuous action, cast in moveable layers that come apart and fit back together like a vertically stacked puzzle. Each time a piece is re-assembled, it echoes the actions of its original making process and is simultaneously being re-made in a new time and a new environment with new intention.
