Assemblages: Basketball Bloom Series
In my “basketball blooms” series, the mundane basketball is transformed into a radial symmetric assemblage that comments on the human touch, form, history, community and place. I search for and collect new and used basketballs that I then transform into larger mandala-like blooms. The basketballs are deconstructed and then reassembled using shoestrings. The title of the works are determined by the drawings, prints, and markings on the skin of the basketball. The works speak and label themselves."
