The Vanderers (2014- )

The Vanderers sculptures have been completed since 2014 with 3d modeling and 3d printing. Moving human figure, relationships between people and human relationships with environment have been starting points for sculptures. Human silhouettes (child, woman, man, elderly, lying human or skeleton) are 3d modeled to sculptural forms. Silhouettes change from each other and outlines of sculptures are formed.

I was inspired by Marcel Duchamp's 1912 painting Nude Descending a Staircase, No. 2. The painting combines elements of both the Cubist and Futurist movements. In the composition, Duchamp depicts motion by successive superimposed images, similar to stroboscopic motion photography. Duchamp also recognized the influence of the stop-motion photography of Étienne-Jules Marey, particularly Muybridge's Woman Walking Downstairs from his 1887 picture series, published as The Human Figure in Motion.


In my Father to Son sculpture human silhouettes (my husband and son) are joined together to capture movement and time in a sculpture. Silhouettes form a cavity, which refers to feminine forms like tunnels. Viewer can see through the sculpture and another human figure emerges on the other end of the sculpture. I have been 3d printing the sculpture in several parts to PLA (polylactic acid) which is recyclable plastic. In From Father to Son sculpture 3d printed PLA parts were cast to aluminiun and welded together. Polished sculpture was gun spraypainted.
