Artist Statement:

People are puzzles. These interactive, modular sculptures incorporates life-size silhouettes that can be made and re-made as non-permanent stabiles and mobiles. Made of light-weight extruded polystyrene home insulation, the work is informed by Calder's mobiles, Matisse's cut-outs, and Haring's figurative sculptures.
