Starting with familiar forms and materials, my work proposes an encounter between the body and the object; and is an exploration of subtle spatial and visual interactions with the sculptural object. I utilize an array of materials and methods -- from bronze and resin, to appropriating time embedded materials such as stone or wood-- conflating tangible process-centric materials with more streamlined processes. Trusting form and material to communicate inherent properties, I am interested in my chosen materials’ corporeal associations and potential to incite physical response.
In response to an increasingly disembodied and digitized world, I use the properties of materials to embody a sense of time and presence, building on the sensorial potential of sculpture. Though I draw on a deeply rooted philosophical and historical view of sculpture, my approach remains open and playful, each work exploring fundamental aspects of being in the world.
