An exhibition of small sculptures held in the street-level window of my friend Karin’s apartment. Clunky geometric forms, polychromatic surfaces and plasticine figures pit playfulness and joy against uncertainty and despair.

The window will be home to new things to look at soon: nicetrys.tumblr.com

In the summer of 2012 there was a pool party to celebrate the completion of the project. I demonstrated the marbling process used to produce the work before taking a swim.
