Minimalist Vacation


Portrait of a thought, a pigmented plaster head the color of strawberry ice cream, with emerald green bronze match heads for eyes, and Double-headed match, an oversized wooden matchstick with emerald green match heads on each end, supported by two bronze hooks, comprise this wall-mounted sculpture in two parts. This artwork plays with the relationship between an idea and that idea becoming a physical object, in this case a sculpture. Wanting to show how a thought might begin to take shape, f. ex., in the head of a person, then giving birth to that thought in the symbolic form of an entropically laden object, a double-headed match waiting for its chance, together they quietly celebrate a minimalist vacation.
