King & Queen (Because Your Mother Said So)
Charcoal drawings, cast glycerin, cast lead
Installation dimensions variable
In response to small charcoal drawings that my daughter quietly made on a pillar in an exhibition space, I traced her king and queen large on the wall as monumental evidence of a child's mark in the adult world. In front of the images is built a castle of glycerin cast children's blocks. In the slippery foundation blocks are embedded lead cast letters, arranged to spell out the phrase "Because Your Mother Said So."
