Opening and Hands III

This series of ceramic sculptures on steel plates were created during my Harriet Hale Woolley artist residency at the Fondation des √Čtats-Unis, Paris. Each of the four pieces in the series is made from the same basic visual elements: a length of twisted hemp rope connected to a pair of outstretched hands. The series begins with hands clasped together, potentially praying, in a closed position. The same hands then bend outwards, first opening up, then attempting to wrest free of each other, while remaining stuck, perpetually held together by the same length of rope.
