Social Scenes

2009-2012

This body of work depicting scenes of common social events deals with feelings of alienation, sometimes with an underlying sense of hostility. I tried to include at least one figure that was overtly secluded from the crowd. In these pieces the way that the figures play off of one another was very important to me. I like the way layering resin was able to physically remove them from one another, and at the same time freeze them permanently in their positions, with no chance of movement.
