In 2010, I started working with large salt licks found at my local feed store. They are dense, heavy blocks in uniform units of luminous yellow, white, blue and shades of brown, each 10.5" x 10.5" x 10.5" (27cm x 27cm x 27cm). To date, I have been immersing them in water as well as pouring solutions into their cavities, allowing for transformations either from the outside in or the inside out. This new body of work is connected to my sugar installations, yet the history of salt, the scale of each element, its plasticity and rich colour allow for further explorations and discoveries.
