I am interested in solving an unknown factor of art and an unknown factor of life. Eva Hesse
The process of creating a work of art is the point of it. I believe the emotion and labor of the maker can be translated to the object. I am fascinated by the structure and potential conceptual application of fibrous materials. I use contemporary and historic techniques and equipment to create a personal and innovative visual language. My artistic intention is to evoke excitement and emotion by subverting mundane, commonplace objects. I am fascinated by the roles textiles play in human experience. Fiber is not unique among cultures, ideological classes, or racial identities. I discover I have a wealth of material sources and aesthetic qualities from which I draw inspiration for my tactile sculptures, installations, and wearables. Viewers can relate to my work because the materials I use pass through their hand or are worn on their body consistently during their lifetime. My material choices are transformed, due to repetitive construction techniques. My work is sculptural, and also can worn on the body. I explore the temporal, emotional experience and dialogue among artist, wearer, and viewer.
