"Two High Heals" - 1994

Laser printed images and clay image mounted on panel - 9' -0" x 10'-0" - Boston, MA.

As the artist-in-residence at the Artist Foundation in Boston, MA the artist executed a series of installations in a public atrium having to do with symbols and gender. This work, a billboard size image of two high heels, was made up of hundreds of slips of paper stapled directly to the wall. On each slip was a laser printed international female symbol commonly found on restroom doors. In the center of this image on a round wood panel were fragments of what looked to be a primitive vaginal form.

In this work the artist juxtaposed a singular handmade image with hundreds of mass-produced images. The mass-produced images were made of cheap temporary materials. The singular image was made up of gold fragments mounted on a highly polished epoxy painted wood panel. This series raised issues of : singular vs. multiple, hand-made vs. mass-produced, ancient vs. modern, precious materials vs. cheap ones, and permanence vs. transitory.
