Many of the pieces in this series investigate commemoration and the state of absence that is intimately tied to memorials. These sculptures reference memorial markers, those stones with metal plaques that honor a place, event, or vista. Several of the works have an autobiographical aspect as they incorporate and recontextualize objects from my personal past. These small objects complicate the formal abstraction; geometric forms transform into mysterious monuments.
