Sad Clowns of the Anthropocene is a sculpture series that features anthropomorphic “rock bodies”. Pointing to the rock record – it’s timeline extended far into the past, and to human-animal forms, the sculptures that make up this series appear as isolated standing figures, totemic in isolation. But unlike totems, they settle into solemn standing postures, resting in their resignation. And just as the rock record provides visual clues to the distant geological past, what narratives might these human-animal rock bodies suggest? As sad clown analogies – perhaps the folly of our Anthropocentric deceit; as rock bodies – a geologic record of our once diverse, human-animal past.
