Artist Statement

Rest Stop is a resting stop for birds that borrows from modernism, postmodernism and ancient ruins. This amalgam of variably shaped structures calls attention to the diverse nature of architectural styles that have shaped our culture over the years. Because this dwelling is for birds, it also references environmental issues such as the urgent need for rest stations for migrating birds to stop and gather strength for their remaining journey.
