Objects and Ideas

On one wall of Tent Gallery were five small 12 inch by 12 inch objects. They were more like sharing a 3-D sketch book page, a place where one could see ideas forming for future pieces from where I was during the show. All together they do read like ritual objects whose nature has not been ascertained yet.
