The Prince Project, which I was awarded a 2005 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship to begin, is comprised of four sections entitled:
Dust, Wicked, SEVEN, and White Light. In its totality, it is a non- linear narrative rooted through a fused-form entitled Prince and questions if empathy can be conveyed through static figuration, a slice of sculptural expression that can often be seen as obsolete in a post-human conversation. The arc of the narrative uses gestures and tropes that have been historically and commercially coded into images, literature, and statuary to cue aspects of spirituality, loss, and idealism.
The Prince Project is a trailing project that I am committed to work over the course of my lifetime, while other series of works are made in my studio. In this way, elements of the narrative change as I inevitable age and mature. To see a diagram of the The Prince Project, please click here.
