Forms of Refinement Form 4107 detail click for this gallery
These works are inspired by the natural ephemera that I gather in my neighborhood. The birds are found dead and then immediately frozen. I pick the flowers which mostly come from the trees where the live birds once lived. The birds and the flowers are transient and unstable--the flowers wilting, disintegrating and changing color, the birds thawing. Controlling this process of decay, I used these forms to construct sculptures for the camera that depend upon observation and the passage of time.
