The objects are frozen in a persistent state of flux; splattered pigment evolves over time. The fluidity of the cascading plaster is halted causing a brittle, crumbly, tenuous state which, if shattered, would require reconditioning into a fractured object. Gushing from the cast tube, extruding over the ready-made moulds, the plaster was bent, twisted, and forced into unique shapes by my own bodily movements. Once removed from the moulds, they created delicate, fragile forms. These structures became more elaborate, layering and uniting to establish oversized painterly objects.
