Artwork/ CV > SCULPTURE

Skin was the first chair I altered. The chair sat in my studio for about a year; in that time thoughts of my country’s colonial history kept coming to me. I saw the frame of the chair as the structure put in place by the French, British and Spanish conquerors, while the rubber bands stand in for the native peoples, the Carib & Arawak.
