A Leg to Stand On: 


“A leg to stand on”  is a play on words that references an old idiom. Chair-like figures are uplifted and depicted with unconventional and inventive foundations to offer support by any means necessary. In the early 1900’s, certain furniture was symbolic of social class, an objectified representation here as a means to question women’s value in society at that time. As these sculptures strive towards stability from reconstructed elements of the home, the viewer is offered a place to rest and reflect on the roles we play as judge or jury.
