  • The first two are great the last one does not fit with the others. Not that i dont like it, its just more graphic.

  • Love the shadow work. Great stuff.

  • Ami

    I think the titles complete the pieces. “…afternoon shadows” and “…attached with water” makes it kind of transient. I like the humor.

  • Jon

    Took me time to work out the need for context with the second photo but when I got it it all made sense. Fun work

  • jill

    wow. very nice. have done something similar, without a real life skulpture.
