other figurines

Crash employs gestural conventions of traditional ceramic figurines in order to disrupt our expectations of them.  The speed, violence and chaos of the moment portrayed adopt the measured waltz-like pace conjured by a Rococo formal vocabulary.  The intent is to evoke the dread-filled slo-mo one might experience in an actual crash, paired uneasily with the lyricism and fragility conveyed in the ceramic material. Dimensions: 9 inches x 15 x 26.
