“I work in clay, casting and unique printing techniques as these mediums share the properties of direct manipulation yet retain delicacy and provide a dialogue within the idea of suspension, shelter and displacement in relation to the iconic representations of culture.
A great fascination of mine is the definition of a matrix, the secondary pictures show how we would form in a successful coherence of the primary. Post-modern society has created a sense of all in one and one in all within us. Within this and the essence of what remains in our identity and cultural melting pot we are afforded the opportunity to choose who we are and what is passed on. The mind-set is a very delicate place intricately woven by a culmination of events unique to each individual.
I explore the journey of knowledge by depicting scopes of reality in the quiet thoughtful spaces of the mind. My work deals with human presence and experience influenced by ones geographical placement. The ripple effects of human action and interaction is a great part of my work. I seek to express moments of contact, humans seen as emotional bags walking around with moving dialogue which desires to be shared."
