With hand-constructed mixed-media frames that act as a subtext for the central image, The Icons of the Self group combines techniques such as painting, drawing, wood-working, casting, and assemblage. Ready-mades, found objects, and original sculpture are placed in surprising, unlikely arrangements and many parody earlier art forms, such as the altarpiece, to intensify meaning.
