The Grotto of the (Self-Reflective) Futurist Duck (working title) (date n.a)
mixed media with borken mirrored glass (n.a)

The shattered remains of an earthenware duck are dispersed into space at
the extremities of bits of wire, as if suspended in motion immediately after an
explosion. The duck emerges, mock-heroically, from a shattered sunset, beak
open, emitting its silent call.
The work in interested in the beauty of “dirty” glass, glass that would normally
no longer have a function or aesthetic.
