The exercise is very simple: close your eyes and think of sculpture. What is the first image that comes to mind? These papier mâché models are quick exercises in outputting an idea of sculpture accessed from the flotsam of images that float around the artist’s unconscious. All ten models came out at 1:10 scale and all are abstract monuments with arches that can be passed under by the viewer. The ten models are shown on a table.
