STATEMENT OF WORK

In my work, I explore themes of comfort and horror, memory and forgetting, and transformation and habit. The surface of a bed is a place where one both experiences and escapes reality, a physical connection between dreaming and waking life. Using painting and sewing, I model shallow reliefs out of used patterned bed sheets, disrupting the familiar floral patterns. While painting I work intuitively and impulsively, often referring to remembered or imagined floral imagery.
