There Be Dragons
The frames of the sculptures are drawings in space, mimicking biological structures. The first piece is made out of a series of steel curves that thread through an over sized aluminum chain. The spine arcs up and outward pulled, supported, and restrained by a graph of black cord on the ceiling and walls of the room. Streaks of colored fabric run through it, creeping out onto the floor. Elsewhere, a blue line falls in a slight spiral from the ceiling, bound and weighed down by its undulating exterior of black plastic straps. Screws keep the straps in place and the form spiked armor.
