Baby Boomer Pile Up

Jennifer McCandless's avatar Jennifer McCandless

My recent work is figurative, narrative and often satirical. I use humor in the work as a doorway in to the viewer, to make the work accessible and the content more palatable. Having been formally trained in figurative sculpture (and a teacher of figure sculpture), I use elements of proportion and detail in just enough quantity to make the figures believable but highly expressive. In Baby Boomer Pile Up I am exploring relationships, personality, responsibility, judgement and hope, the winners and the losers, the dreamers, those who judge. I am also interested in formal issues of movement and mass, negative space and contrast, texture and the liminal place between representation and abstraction in representing human character and where on that scale a person's character is captured.
