Enshrinement 2020
Digital prints of photographs of porcelain sculptures

Originally, the set of works was destined as a multimedia installation, the coronavirus situation has placed a pause on this work. However, photography has allowed me to capture the essence of the figures inspired by the works of Giorgio Morandi and Michelangelo. (I completed a series of photographs of the Prisoners at the Academia Gallery in Florence in 2005).

I conceived of them as being together in conversation but somewhat isolated from one another. This reminds me of the difficulty of communicating effectively with any one form of language and how empathy is a necessary part of in the process of understanding one another.

The chrysalid-like forms represent a transition state between the animal and the human. A sensual sense of self in an increasingly technological society.
