Work from his oeuvre.
“For the concrete block piece, I substituted colored plasticine for mortar. In this position, the plasticine becomes filler that describes and embellishes the in-between spaces of the wall. Permanent Fern is made with a plastic plant and a cast generated from the cardboard shipping box it arrived in. Primer is part of a larger series of discarded foam packaging that I found near my studio and filled with various grades of concrete. I like thinking of the foam as a cultural blank spot that gains new purpose as a shape generator.” – Ethan Greenbaum
