Tables

( Prices upon request )

Every society/culture uses some sort of table for various needs or activities. A person in Libya may simply use the ground as a table for mealtime while Queen Elizabeth may eat on a 14th century elaborately carved and gilded table. And, in between, we all use different tables for a variety of purposes.

In some of these works I imagined tables that famous writers have used. For example, what might Dorothy Parkers’ table look like or Jane Austen’s or Antonin Artaud’s? Also, I explore versions of the Parson’s Table, deconstructing, rearranging or omitting parts. Occasionally I detour to a conceptual idea as in the work “Table This.” The Parson’s Tables are positioned in a distressed textural surface quite unlike the actual smooth surface of a Parson’s Table.
