Urban Characters

"Urban Characters", fabric and mixed-media, 2015, Hot Wood Arts Center, Red Hook, Brooklyn
This series of 60 soft sculptures were inspired by those characters that are a part of our daily and urban life, such as people who pick up cans on the street, homeless people, people on wheelchairs. Most of them carry a physical weight. My soft sculptures are a hybrid of the outline of their body and the shape of the weight they carry. "Urban Characters" relate to the body and the place we occupy.
