Bricklayer, '15

42" x 36" x 84"

Red brick, mortar, fabricated steel, patina, and adobe stucco

This work was specific for a Washington Sculptors Group show at the Workhouse Arts Center in Virginia.  The application called for works about the history of the site, a former prison.  After some research I found that the original prisoners built a kiln on site to fire the bricks in which they built the prison around themselves with.... I found that notion quite profound.  My work is a hybrid coffin and brick kiln, built for my size as a nod to the claim of 'digging your own grave' so to speak.
