Designer Handbags

In the Cathedral Candy Series, my sculptures reinforce the bags iconic status - presenting an object that is by nature ephemeral, and then transforming it into an enduring, almost religious, idol for worship. 

In the Designer Handbags series,  I explore society's long-standing obsession with status symbols and my own ambivalent relationship with them.  The stone purses underscore the inherent contradiction of man's, and woman's, never-ending quest for ephemeral prizes.
