Mixed Media Sculpture

For this series, I layer
pieces of sheer fabric into
negative plaster body casts
to produce a positive with
a skin-like appearance. I
cut and sew these “skins”
to transform the original
into something of my own
design.  To "flesh them
out" I add materials such
as wire mesh, crepe hair,
rubber, and bone, or
combine them with silk-
screened, painted, or
photo-based imagery and
video sequences.  The
results are fantasies on the
re-construction of the
