In “Displacement/ Dislocation”, the sculptural segment of “The Marriage Project”, Dorian Webb addresses commonly held expectations of unity and continuity, and demonstrates why these expectations are not only unreasonable, but also wholly unattainable. Using handcrafted bronze and semiprecious stones, the artist registers the acceptance of the existence of “Displacement/Dislocation” as a given, and depicts the results of that disconnection in one of a kind pieces. Here, the friction that results in the intersection of high expectations and inescapable reality is depicted through bold use of color and juxtaposition that belies its innate dysphoria. Reflecting Webb’s jeweler’s expertise, these signed, intimately scaled works of art are meant to be within reach of fingertips where they can provide reassurance and solace. “What I find interesting is not the feeling of being ripped from a world that you know, and being thrust into one you don’t, but instead is looking at what comes from that process, and capturing those fleeting moments in a tangible form.” Webb states.
