Artist's Insight:
"Here, a beaded grid functions like wire mesh reinforcing concrete foundations, both containing and supporting daubs of aluminum fleck. Thinking about beads’ ambivalent value in relationship to taste in fashion, jewelry, and aesthetics like grit-glam and stealth-wealth, the materials in this piece were chosen to continually confuse the tasteful,  tacky, expensive, heavy, and the delicate, and to question how these qualifiers function in our evaluation of art pieces."
