Colossus

Artists' Statement: This project is meant to point to women in history while cementing them around us. In so doing, I hope to remove the boundaries of the historical figure by making them as fluid and resilient as the sky or sea or the natural world at large. However, it is important to note that these sculptures do not represent womanhood in its entirety. But, their presence as women of power, intellect, mysticism, grace, history, prophecy, etc. allows them to collide with modernity in a way that evokes change and strength, and in a way that has altered and will continue to alter the very landscape of our society.
