My body of work continues to grow and acquire complex qualities, propelled by an engine of psychological and sociological thinking that connects an object to the body and a sculpture to the brain. Using the body as a point of reference and navigation I observe and explore the individual pursuit for resolution and its social effect. What began as a personal exploration of bodily excess and habitual behavior has evolved into a multi-faceted analysis of identity, security and desire.
By investigating the psychological and biological depths of the individual and their relation to language, my work brings to mind the tension and dissonance between the two. Through a rigorous studio practice I transform objects, images, and ephemeral materials from the everyday in an attempt to comprehend the individual and thus the social. Coming from a typical Western ideology and context where exterior image trumps internal significance I appoint the body as the primary condition on which to comprehend the world.
