Description

These works focus on relationships, introspection, isolation, and transformation. Each material acts in a specific role to each concept; in all the works, I strive to include the viewer in some way. Though derived from personal meditations, my work aims to beckon the viewer to focus on the pensive, the subconscious, and the under-considered aspects of life. Common methods of my practice are joinery of wood, glass, metal, and mixed materials, as well as wood carving, lathe turning, and hot sculpting glass. The results from my exploration of materials include a new understanding and interest in juxtaposition of space, body, and other. The processes, to me, are just important as the end result; working with each material presents a different experience, and the act of sculpting in its various forms is personally meditative. Artists that influence my work and practices include Yoko Ono, Martin Puryear, Jin Hongo, Dan Graham, Eva Hesse, Kiki Smith, and Kim Harty.
