I am working on a series of abstract animate forms made of wood and plaster. I am interested in investigating how form can function to express complex experiences and act as a universal language between the artist and the viewer, reflecting us, as humanity, back to ourselves. I would like to explore how my forms can work as 3 dimensional drawing, activating the space within and around them.
Our mortal, corporal selves are fragile and vulnerable, as are my sculptures, which are constructed of thin and worn pieces of wood, bound together by plaster bandages.
The references to primitive structures in my work functions as both a metaphor for the skeleton, which supports our flesh, and for shelters, which protect our bodies.
