Soft Fragments 2: Slabs, 2018
24" x 36" x 33"
Fabric (Trevira CS Polyester) upholstery over
a plywood structure
“Soft Fragments: Slabs is part of an ongoing exploration into form-making at the scale of furniture. Its simple shapes and muted color might invite interpretation, for some. But the composition offers little information to the viewer. The chair is, by design, inadequate as sculpture, ambivalent toward function, and definitely not Architecture.
Basic upholstered forms resemble the detail-less massing diagrams created with digital modeling software for architectural projects. But unlike these virtual models, Soft Fragments are physical, plush, and have the slight irregularities common to upholstery. Like an architectural diagram- turned-puppet, these pieces bridge between the space of high-tech digital modeling and low-tech physical fabrication.”
