The Visitor Series of Boxes

Visitor_image2Visitor_image10Visitor_image3

The Visitor series utilized pre-existing containers, and the interiors were fitted with custom-designed and fabricated compartmentalized trays, shelves and drawers. Taking design cues from the containers themselves, the interiors were transformed into minimalist, sculptural explorations, allowing the viewer to imagine what they might potentially hold. As the works developed, I began to see them as portraits and titled them to reflect the personality type/relationship role characterized by the resulting juxtapositions.
