Metal relief sculpture diptych
36”h x 36”w x 4”d (each panel)
Collection of Oral Surgery Associates of Lansing

“OPEN WIDER PLEASE” is a diptych (or two section) work commissioned for the waiting room of an oral surgery clinic in Okemos, Michigan. “Open Wider Please” is actually the title of the panel on the right. The panel to the left is titled “Surgeon is In”. Both panels are abstract arrangements of all the letters in the titles. The intent of the content and compositions are deliberately cryptic, in an effort to keep the curious (and anxious) patient occupied by trying to figure out just what those things say.
