Giant Earrings 2008

Artist Statement

“I had visited MOMA in New York and saw Claes Oldenburg’s over-sized pop sculptures. I was captivated by the “stitching and sewing” inherent in the work as well as their enormous size and sense of humor. At that moment I realized I could use my Indigenous bead making skills to marry the indigenous with the idea of “super-sized.”
