IN SEARCH OF BEATRICE

I FOUND AN OLD CLOTHES RAIL, IT HAD BEEN SITTING IN MY STUDIO FOR MONTHS AND I WASN'T SURE WHAT TO DO WITH IT.

 

AROUND THE SAME TIME I BECAME INTERESTED IN DANTES INFERNO REFLECTING ON SIN AND THE FATE OF LOST LOVE.

 

I WAS INTRIGUED BY DANTES JOURNEY THROUGH HELL TO FIND HIS TRUE LOVE BEATRICE. I LOOKED AT THE METAL CLOTHES RAIL AND SAW IT AS A GATEWAY FILLED WITH OBSTACLES THAT PREVENT ONE FROM REACHING THEIR GOAL.

 

THIS WAS THE BEGINNING OF MY EXPLORATION INTO USING THREAD AND STRING AS A SCULPTURAL MATERIAL.

 

THE WORK DEVELOPED SPONTANEOUSLY AS I LISTENED TO CANTOS
