touch indexically registers memory on the material surface as rust–
an intimate yet shared public surface.

Forms of this Protoist Series began as a painter replacing paint with heat; investigating material states through tremendous melting cuts of great temperature suspending elements of iron, carbon, manganese, copper and silicon in a moment between solid and liquid states as well as between sensory stimulus and definition.

Curators: Franklin Sirmans, Holly Harrison
