Time Out Says

Dream catchers meet Arte Povera in these talismanic sculptures made of refuse (bottle caps; ping pong balls) strung together into cat’s cradle–like arrangements that evoke skeletal forms. Mortality seems to be a theme in the artist’s gallery debut, but more to the point, perhaps, these objects (which straddle the ancient and present day) metaphorically occupy a space between death and resurrection, as if they were meant for some sort of shamanic ritual at a recycling center.
