These pieces are “Snowflakes” or geometrically 6 pointed star shapes with repeating patterns created by folding paper as school children do to make wintertime celebratory objects. I then mount the folded pieces to wood and hay bales and shoot then with a 20 gauge shotgun with either buckshot or the finer birdshot ammunition. These pieces are then pulled from the wreckage of the wood boards pellets and hay they were fastened to during the repetitive shooting process and surgically unfolded in the studio. What is revealed are repeating patterns where the ammunition has torn areas away creating a fractal like structure that are reminiscent of the complexity and beauty of individual snowflakes in nature. The delicacy of the pieces transcend the brut destructive force of there creation.
