Using mannequin hands, grain and glue I created an installation that looks at world hunger and consumerism. At the time of this installation there was an extreme hunger crisis in Cameroon reported. While here in the United States, it was reported that exorbitant amounts of food was being thrown out every single day. This work looks at that disparity and brings a symbol of consumerism (the mannequin) and actual food grains together. As an artist I am keenly aware that my work might not solve the crisis or resolve this disparity. Yet, perhaps it provides a new ways of looking at the problem.

 
 
 
 
 

Mixed Media Installations are custom made for the space and exhibition theme I am invited to be a part of. While they are site-specific, these works consider the curator’s vision and my own interpretation of that vision. Each work is hand made by the artist for a particular space and individual needs. Purchasing price is determined by the size of the space and the scope of the work. I work with each client to determine their needs and budget. For exhibition inquiries, a site visit, the curator’s theme and specs are necessary to determine the specifics of the installation. For each institution or venue, I want to ensure that my site responsive installation will engage the audience in a multitude of ways.
