Guide STARS

salvaged laser cut plywood, felt
sizes noted individually

These dimensional plywood wall sculptures use a star motif to refer to the ancient practice of wayfinding. I created them when I was questioning the direction I wanted my artistic practice to go and instead of an answer, each piece points in every imaginable direction.

The works employ scrap materials from laser-cutting projects, utilizing the copious discards of the contemporary 'maker movement' to create new heavenly bodies.
>>> Thanks to North CNC for providing materials for creative re-use!

A selection are on view at Gray Contemporary in Houston, Texas through October 12th.
