Relic

2012, Rubber, metal, and cement on glass, 18 x 12 in

In the work Relic, an assemblage of rubber, metal, and cement is suspended within a glass display case like an archaeological finding, its components not historical relics, but fragments of the contemporary city. A display without a label, an artifact without a context, the viewer is forced to seek within himself the significance of the shape before him, reading the form like a Rorschach blot or the natural phenomena in which the faithful recognize the face of the Virgin Mary, projecting onto it the symbols of his innermost hopes and fears.
