Dimensions – 11.5″ x 10″
This piece is all about living in the city,
in close confinement. Hundreds of people
living in one space, one building, stacked up
in layers, one on top of the other, claustrophobic,
confined (resembling slave ships?).
This is a building of strangers.
You don’t know who’s living next to you,
underneath you, above you – maybe you don’t want
to know. Nothing but strangers.
Above is an excerpt from Ameen, by Joanne Fenton Humphrey – a 120 page book that highlights the person and works of Tracy Ameen, who is internationally known for her sculpting and doublewall pottery.
