Dusty Dry On The Tongue Swallowed Some

Some of her works, such as Banging, Dubbed, The L, The LL, The Lapis Lazuli, Night Ocean Return Without and Without Hesitate (all 2010), could almost be called concrete poems - collected refuse objects have been literally embedded into wet panels of the material, finished with an inscription of the artist’s initials at the bottom, nodding to mark-making on actual street art. Similarly, in her sculpture Untitled (2010) discarded scraps of metal have been planted in a concrete pedestal. The heaviness of these pieces contrasts with the delicacy and refined balance of Figurine with Horns, Tennessee Hills and Organ Invention (all 2010), abstract shapes that somehow find completion in the artist’s ambiguous titles.
