Who are you in a divided nation?

The sculpture pictured here is titled “Portrait of Self: America.” Last year I was invited to participate in a group show titled, “Years of Chaos – Issues That Are Destroying Us.” The show was politically themed and this was the work created for it. It struck me then, as it does now, that partisanship is the easy response to that which divides us as a nation, and as people. I wanted to create a work that spoke directly to the viewer rather than their place on the political spectrum. My intent with this sculpture was to create space where one is able to contemplate one’s place in that divide. The artwork is intended as a looking glass of sorts. When looking into the sculpture the viewer sees their own broken image reflected back.
