Bound to Cut, 2012

The series Bound to Cut targets heavy matters such as life, death, relation, and separation. In response, these themes are addressed with equally heavy materials of casted iron and aluminum. The pair of scissors, a consistent motif captures an implied action of the transition to loss and a hesitation through binding fibers. The silhouettes of the mother and daughter and the remnants of the crocheted doily point to the home and the implications of the family unit.
