Pairshaped | 2014-2015

In early 2014, I was asked to participate in a Pairshaped project and was paired with Seattle based poet Amber Nelson. The titles of each sculpture start with the name I chose but then is followed by the specific title of each of her poems which were in response to the piece.

Pairshaped.org supports art as a creative dialogue across all disciplines and mediums. Through critical engagement with each other’s output and practice, their contributors take part in developing original series of works for greater community discussion. The resulting confluence of methods and aesthetics, possibilities and discoveries, reveals new ways of thinking about narrative, presentation, commentary, and process. Call and response. Share and explore. Pair and shape. Art is not bound by type or means. It is our aim to bring together artists, established and emerging, to generate something vital, something hybrid, something not yet realized, and always evolving.
