everyday objects for a table combines found rocks, coated with repeated brushstrokes of gesso, and the studio table upon which they were made. The size and shape of the brushstroke is determined by each rock—the most basic sculptural form found in nature. The rocks are chosen based upon how I see their potential accommodation of the brushstroke. This mirroring aspect between the choosing and the making of the gestures complicates the separation of the two materials that make up each sculpture: the organic matter of the rock, and the gesso build-up are bound together through a reflexive process of choosing and making.
At this point, each rock is deemed finished when the buildup of gesso is equal in thickness to the found rock. The detail shot of everyday objects for a table shows the rocks placed in a way similar to how they were when I worked on them in the studio: respecting that I'm right handed, the distance I could reach, and so on.
