Built environments, like most things in this world, have lifecycles. Our cities go through phases of decline and resurgence. Some buildings age gracefully, cared for and made to last, others slump and crumble with time. A building nears the end of it’s life, showing signs of neglect. It is slated for demolition and torn down within a matter of days. What was once a recognizable, familiar structure, becomes a pile of rubbish and then a cleared plot of land- all previous history removed. It is it then that a new lifecycle begins. Construction digs down, lays rebar, pours concrete and builds pillars. The skeleton of the new building emerges.
This is my first solo show since my graduate thesis in 2012 and will be showing both jewelry and sculpture.
