Portable Sculptures- Monumental Miniatures

Portable sculptures made from melted and (re)(de)formed coins recuperated from the fires of the incinerator.  Photography and object- object and photography – the 3 D images reveal them in their minute detail, as they really are – reflections on an object designed to be photographed and worn.
Parure and money were often the interchangeable – diamonds, gold, gems and precious metals of all kinds all have magical roots and meanings enshrined in myth. The monu/mental miniatures are vehicles, masks and shapes to be interpreted freely. One sees the artwork on the wall and notices that they are also worn.
