My artistic practice explores shapes, materials and colors. I create painted, folded, and curved paper sculptures out of sketches that I want to see come alive, Each shape corresponds with a daily journal entry or an innate feeling I dimentionalize emotions. “I feel like a lot has happened in the last few days and I’m not articulating it well enough” will translate into a foam pit of pom poms, a deeply colored motorized mobile, or a simple pen and ink sketch. I use painting and sculpture to create my own lexicons of shape, color and material that can transmit coded personal messages and emotions. My pieces are large and inclusive. The audience activates my work. In some instances a viewer can stand inside, watching light bouncing through the crevices, others beg to be touched/rotated/altered/moved/etc.. Yearning and avoidance are the rhythms within my practice, the boundary between bodily life and the feel of art is obliterated.
