"the shape of things" explores the physical and psychological presence of structures throughout the landscape of Southwest Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio. Each business, home and remnant of building possess layers of the past and present, evidence of change in both their -physical and functional existence. Simply centered, the shapes are solid masses in space, often empty inside like skeletal remains of a once brighter and possibly more vibrant time. Other shapes are revived and bursting with color, yet stand awkwardly alone; four generations removed from the initial purpose of construction, refurbished and reclaimed. Ultimately, "the shape of things" is happy and sad, resurfaced and distressed, standing strong, unshaken, withered and waning.
