brotman piece
My newest work includes installations of stitched paper which hover between sculpture and drawing and, as well, between the polarities of delicate and menacing. These objects suggest a relationship to the body, which is frequently subverted by scale, positioning, and a variety of confounding elements. Influences on my work include Dada absurdist objects, images, and machines; post-minimalist works, and a wide variety of love stories from sources as diverse as Othello to day time soap operas. -- Judith Brotman brotman piece
