Experiments in Resistance
    In this body of work, entitled Experiments in Resistance, I press under-glazed and fired clay slabs into ceramic troughs containing wet, usually dyed cement. The clay is pressed at various depths and at different times in the cement's drying time, allowing me to study a vocabulary of haptic pressure, a process of petrifying displacement, and the impact caused from a soft collision between material bodies. I began the series in early 2017, after the U.S. presidential inauguration. Rendered in Atomic-Era colors, and scaled to the hand-held, the work capriciously recalls associations of both play and pressure. These sculptures perform as artwork but fundamentally exists as concrete artifacts, storing a memorial archive of environmental and corporeal events encircling phenomena of refusal, surrender, and dispersal.
