Wheel of Fortune, began with Arc De Triomphe, composed of 13 aluminum casts of pregnant women. Its texture speaks to the fragility of life, the pain and vulnerability of childbirth. Another element of this project, Initial Response, utilizes 14 pregnant torsos that wrap around an oversized letter lit from within. In separating the front from back torso, I create possibilities of the unknown -- identified with an initial -- a letter designating something new. While each capsule is a self-contained sculpture, I envision them together as a large installation. arc de triompheI ECSSN - Initial Response SeriesNEESSUUO' [quotation mark]O
