Statement:   With the detachment of a stoic, St.Germain transforms the vestiges of a protracted encounter with obsessive- compulsive disorder into beguilingly poetic objects.  By aestheticizing plaster bandages, a material associated with fixing bones and making masks, St.Germain infuses his work with pathos and mystery.  His formally rigorous objects, created through an obsessive layering process, evoke secret wounds, emotional alienation and a desire for transcendence.
