“ the realm" is the underground habitat of “the others”.  These 3 sculptures appear to be metal and stone and create an illusion of great weight. They mimic the mechanical inventions and living spaces of “the others” and suggest convoluted tunnels  and remnants of the peoples who lived there.  An inhabitant may be glimpsed. Each artwork can stand -a- lone or be part of an installation. 


The Others is an exploration of what it means to be visually and culturally “different”. This faux society of small, almost identical individuals live in caves, are innovative, and generally peaceful. They live invisibly until a group of “humans” discover them and become alarmed by their appearance and cultural disparities. Once they are discovered, their way of life leads to fear and misunderstanding. A great upheaval ensues and their way of life is threatened resulting in an explosive end…or is it a new beginning?  
Contemporary issues concerning man/woman as he is pitted against nature and society has always been the root of my practice. Borrowing imagery from the internet, newspapers and magazines, and mixing them with my imagination has produced this body of work. 
The surreal atmosphere of layered compositions leads us to no answers…time and place is not of concern. This series is a surreal and universal appraisal of society today, yesterday and tomorrow. 

The dwellings are the invention of "the others" and demonstrate their unique architectural abilities. Strange lights emerge from the interiors and sounds occur suggestioning the "lives" that are within.
