Above And Below is a metaphorical shelf and scale made of drywall, plaster, gauze and medical tape. It depicts a specific practiced family superstition of gifting flowers—a dozen only for the dead, one extra always for the living. The single graphite covered rose itself grows out of an eraser hinting to impermanence and to the possibility of erasure that is always a possibility.
