Artist’s Statement: my show calls attention to and invites aesthetic consideration of the timeless and humble weed. The artwork consists of a wooden, rectangular table covered in porcelain paper-clay tiles, and growing out of the tiles are porcelain paper-clay weeds. The addition of cast light from LEDs creates dynamic, multi-layered complex shadows. Determined and ever-present, weeds serve as a symbol of the persistence of life in face of harsh conditions and turmoil. Memorializing weeds in clay, more specifically porcelain, reiterates the beauty, delicate, and surprising resiliency of these errant plants. They intrude into our worlds, yet have existed before us and will exist long after we are gone.
