Christine Kowal Post
I prefer to work with wood, using a mallet and chisel. I carve relief panels as well as directly from the log. My sculptures are figurative and narrative. I explore certain themes concerned with the lives of women – how they have been represented and the influence of biology, but I also investigate our relationship with the world around us to examine issues and attitudes which help us understand the human condition. Although Expulsion is a biblical theme, here I am exploring the idea of our destruction of the environment, of animals expelled from their paradise. Sticklebacks are simply there in my pond, and I love them.
