Exhibited in: "BFA Exhibition II", 2004, Rolland Dille Art Gallery, Minnesota State University Moorhead
“Marshmallow Creme" was perceived and created toward the presence of the viewer. The pieces encourage the viewer to participate by looking through the eye-openings of the masks. The physical stance of the participant is controlled by the sculptures’ scale and installation. When the viewer interacts, the object becomes an extension of the individual’s body allowing others in the gallery to view the work in its most complete physical state. Interaction is a necessary component of the artwork.
Within the glossy shells of “Marshmallow Creme” is a materialscapes that creates a mini-environment separate from the external world. I’m interested in the sensual implications of the material.
