prayer began as a chunk of raw alabaster gifted by a stranger on a winter night at Fog Bar in Rockland, Maine. The work embraces the non-finito approach to carving wherein the stone oscillates through varying degrees of finish and unaltered, natural states.
Where do you envision seeing this object?
I see this object enjoying the shade of a nopal situated between the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon at Teotihuacan.

babyman studio creates an array of objects using the visual vocabulary of the collective unconscious. The studio strives to make our offerings accessible to a wider public by providing a transparent, time-based breakdown of production practices. babyman gives individuals the opportunity to acquire objects based on their own assessment of how they value labor / how their labor is valued by others. Hopefully this exploration of individual autonomy, open communication and trust-building leads to more generative forms of engagement between artists and their broader communities.
