Untitled Oars
2013 to present
Mixed Media

These Untitled Oars are intended to be shown as multiples, either as a complete or a partial series. Every oar was found or purchased used. The series is ongoing.

Each paddle blade is rendered useless: ruptured, broken, penetrated, perforated, hollowed out, or otherwise driven through. Shown in concert, each unique process informs the next. Every oar stands as a record of radical transformation.

The Untitled Oars are displayed casually, leaning against the wall, paddle blades upwards. Each oar is spaced evenly from the next. Shadows are allowed to be cast and deliberately left unfilled.
