My textile art is constructed from silk that is sliced and seamed in repetitive turns. This technique helps me to understand how things grow, function, and interact in nature. Sewing as a creative process allows me to easily break apart and reconfigure the work, emphasizing actions of separation and (re)connection while exploring concepts of singularity and wholeness.
My recent artwork considers these ideas in regard to the impact of climate change on our psyche. By placing my work on a light box substrate, I amplify its sewn, structural lines and suggest ideas about an omnipresent spiritual component of life.
Below are links to my writing about specific artworks, clarifying my intentions:
“The Observer Series” reinterprets Jasper Johns’ The Seasons.
“The Screaming Dreams of Flowers” addresses pollinator demise.
“The Seasons” is about seasonal change and ceaseless motions of time.
