2016 – 2018 Selected Works
Amarus Ends, 2018

Amarus Ends, 2018 - Laura Hudspith, detail.
Amarus Ends  – detail Resin and acrylic mirror; 30x16x4.75” [breaks apart into an edition of ten]. Photographed by Tamara Legér.  Strewn haphazardly across a mirrored plane lays the remnants of an extravagant meal left to fester. An assortment of emptied oysters sit piled, their little spills and dribbles marking the surface below. The entrée’s exhausted accoutrements dot the scene. Lemon wedges, pinched rinds and tiny utensils are scattered about; a drunk cocktail stands as tall as the mound, another, broken and spilling its dregs into the array; cigarettes, butted out post-meal into the husks. A small pile of maraschino stems from a Manhattan overstuffed, provides a clue towards the title of the work. Each object makes its materiality known–clear resin derived from the pressure of millennia–oysters cast in wretched permanence see their reflection below in refracted light.
