When Metal Rust, 2022

Watercolor and found objects on ceramics

30 x 12 x 20 cm

When Metal Rust in this project, I investigated found objects questioning their origin, where they came from, and what they were trying to say and reveal. To start seeing them as figures having personalities in relation to each other. In the piece I did, I examined metal objects and started recreating them and connecting them using coils to show their connection and how they relate to each other since I acquired them from the same space. All the objects that inspired the piece were old and rusted when I collected them. I added a mixed media approach to the piece by using watercolors and charcoal to enhance the color of the metal and incorporating found metal objects to exist within the piece. 

Everyday Landscapes, 2022


12 x 12 x 24 cm 

What can be part of the daily landscape? On my daily drive around the city, the stop signs always fascinated me in how they occur in natural and man-made landscapes. In particular, when invasive plants grew around it as if they were an integral part of this manufactured sign sculpture. The abstracted figurative form represents the relationship between the road signs and the plants that accrue underneath, raising the question of whether these signs are becoming part of our everyday landscape. The landscape I was witnessing surrounding the stop signs I came upon is enhanced by the piece’s warmth and neutral tones.
