Statement: The playground is a piece which was inspired by my seven-year- old nephew. While seeking influence for my original piece intended for the exhibit, it was the youthful enthusiasm and familial bonds that evoked the concept for this particular piece. As simple as it sounds, one day while my nephew & I settled in at a McDonalds restaurant, he insisted on exploring the play area. While it appeared to my eye to be very lackluster, my nephewÕs eyes were full of joy and excitement. It was at that moment I decided it wasn't good enough for him, and I took him to Magic Mountain. As soon as we arrived, my nephew went straight for the ball pin. His fearlessness and glee were infectious, and before I knew it I was diving in the pit right behind him. Fun, family, and youthful freedom, were the inspiring colors I used in my piece and the colors I hope you all feel as you view it.
