Objects 1990s-2004. Objects that I've done over the years on found everyday objects of spoons, bottles, plastic fruit, toys, were part of the fascination, magic attraction of the various toys, prizes, and objects that could be sent away for and ordered through the various advertisements in comic books.

Growing up in a house of holocaust survivors who had no heirlooms or relics from their families, objects which transmit a sense of continuity from one generation to the next and act as aids to memory. Over the years I created these objects starting with found, everyday objects.

My work has a ritual, repetitive quality with certain actions continually repeated. I cover the actual objects with Tippex and then make pictographic images on that surface. I think that the objects are both an attempt to fill a void, emptiness and lack and also explain my continued fascination with the little objects advertized in the comics of my childhood and youth.
