PROJECT: Coping with Embodiment   Note: Created in an ongoing effort to reflect on the ambiguity of the lived failing body, without necessarily literally depicting a body. I sought ways to imbue the pieces with greater emotive qualities through stature, posture, and facial suggestion. A fissure in the top of the standing piece overflows with an interior substance and appendage.   Materials: Acrylic, latex, polyurethane, fabric, stuffing, wood, nylon, rubber.   Scale: varied.
