Marginalia 

Marginalia

This body of work addresses the marginal spaces where the profane encroaches upon the sacred. Delving into the eclectic world of marginalia from medieval illuminated manuscripts, I have begun to create small sculptures where peculiar stories unfold.  The juxtaposition of playful, sometimes erotic, sometimes grotesque imagery in the margins of these holy books has always intrigued me. There has been a recent trend on the web of taking medieval marginalia and matching them up with contemporary says, creating funny little memes. I was immediately drawn to them, even if they were often taken out of context from their original surroundings. Slowly the quirky animals and people began to creep into the margins of my pieces. Using them as decorative elements in my functional ceramics allowed me to begin to explore the narratives that I was concocting in my head. Eventually the animals, people, architecture and places demanded their own space to tell their stories fully.Type your paragraph here.
