I am interested in painting as a lens through which to reconcile my perception of the corporeal world
with intangible notions of intense human emotion, experience and meaning. It is an understanding
of art as a treatise on human nature.
I am interested in our bodies, their weight, the actual corporeal feeling of them, our denial of
them, hybridity, sexuality. I am interested in religious and ceremonial aesthetics and symbolism-
how we as humans make sense of ourselves.
The possible histories of objects I find have long intrigued me. Why was this item discarded? What
once mean to the person who owned it? If this object could talk, what stories would it tell?
In my work, I am looking for a story.
As a mixed-media artist, I am continually moving between concepts, materials, and processes such as sewing, printmaking, sculpture, and collage-making. My work examines voyeurism, tension, body language, and mimicry in social interaction.
