Upholsterable: Sushi Roll - Steel Wool, 2012

Mixed media

Rebound book pages, cotton batting and steel wool The Upholsterables Series is part of a bigger installation named Preparing for Evanescence that addresses the relative ephemeral nature of humans compared to the belongings that we accumulate, and how we cope with our mortal awareness. The treatment of the objects in this installation exhibits a concern for their well-being, and the caretaker’s need to create and protect in the face of powerlessness and dematerialization. Each possession has been attentively prepared and placed for safekeeping between the folds of fabric, stitches of thread, in the sediment of a household. In these pieces, the handling of the spines is as much for the their own care as it is a necessary process for the artist - a busying of the hands, a quieting of the mind and a distraction from the inevitable. Equal attention is given to objects of use and sentiment as well as space and time.
