My work deals with the relationship between absence and desire. Both are inevitable aspects of the human experience whose artifacts and byproducts often become the raw material I work with - threadbare underwear from lovers, discarded floral arrangements, ancestral wedding glass cast into new forms. These unwanted materials each carry a history with a prescribed ending that is then interrupted to create a new destiny. This multidisciplinary approach requires constant research and development, and a sustained interest and sensitivity to things around me. Many works deal with the craving, and actual necessity for human connection.
I am interested in finding ways to redefine the expression of desire by presenting subject matter through lenses of loss, distance, seduction, aggression, and connection. The result of which is often a synesthetic connection to very universal themes within humanity - an unashamed and multimodal pairing of forms and subjectivity.
