My textiles are constructed from silk that is sliced and seamed in repetitive turns. This technique helps me to understand growth, function, and interaction. 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, wholeness, and relation.
My recent artwork considers these ideas alongside our emotional, human experience. By placing the work on a light box substrate, I amplify its (sewn, structural, and fundamental) lines of connection, and affirm 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.
