“Race was created in 2010 during a period where I was making many assemblages using wheels and casters. The starting point was often circumstantial. Placing found objects next to each other was often the beginning of a work. The resulting sculptures explored themes of metaphysical confrontation and identity, often bringing together disparate elements to reveal hidden, compelling connections, and sought to reveal the cultural forces that develop unintentionally in the real and worlds of objects, material and ideas.” - Randy Burman
