Artist Statement

Research is a big part of my life. I am always questioning ideas, morals, cultures, and origin. I want to know why. Sometimes there is an answer and others not. Contending with the unknown is a catalyst for my work. I seek to comprehend purpose and context within the world. I strive for greater understanding of identity through a contextual revelation of who I am in each moment.

 

Fluidity is important my life and in my work. Materiality is not permanent. Perception is a combination of memory and interpretation which claims individuality. Groundedness and breath are at the center of my work, bringing the body up through and back down to its origin. 

I thrive on polarity, both as it relates to conflict and to growth. I want to know the experience of the individual in relationship to the collective. I want to know simplicity as it relates to complexity.
