Doctor is Out, 2006
Steel, screen print on MDO and acrylic mirror, enamel, hardware
7'5" x 7' x 7'

Based on Lucy’s psychiatric stand in the Charles Schultz Peanuts comic trip, this sculpture re-contextualizes, repurposes and adds a third dimension to a familiar icon. Here, the doctor is always “out” making us acutely aware of the absence of a human presence.
