“Ladies in Waiting”

These female figures are made from found objects. I love the challenge of figuring out how to physically and metaphorically piece stuff together to find a new composition. The secondhand household things that make up the figures all represent objects that once had a purpose no longer needed. Spoons, baskets, egg beaters, drill bits and more bring some whimsey and sacredness to the female form. The figures stand at attention, looking out at the action on the street and beckoning to the passersby.

Behind them I hung two of my paintings, as a back drop, but also to reference scenes from other windows. The paintings are from a series called “Views from My Garden”.
