Refugee Project (2018-Present)

The refugee project is a series of sculptures that explore human migration caused by forced displacement, which has given rise to the largest refugee crisis in history. This project continues to evolve since conflict and disaster induced displacement persists. I’ve sculpted each figure individually so that no two are exactly alike.

I chose to sculpt the figures at 1 1/2 inches tall in order to create a nonrepresentational picture from above or afar. Like the scope of the refugee movement, I want these pieces, at first glance, to appear abstract. It is not until the viewer moves in close that they are able to distinguish the individual figures and recognize the relationships within the mass.

I hope this will encourage the viewer to take the time to look carefully at each figure while understanding that the 110 million displaced people worldwide are individuals searching for safety and hope for themselves or for their family.
