My work investigates how the mind collects and organizes fragmented images from memory in order to continuously recreate a sense of history and self. The work manipulates, abstracts, and conceptualizes the body’s material and psychological reality.  The intent of my work is to seduce and engage the viewer with temporal surfaces and organic formal abstractions that trigger meditation on the mutability of the mind and body.

The physicality of my ceramic process exploits the malleability of clay and its tendency to convey the elasticity and muscularity of the body. The forms themselves are thrown on the wheel, altered and then assembled to achieve the desired changing repetition of form and fragmentation. To further deny the interpretation of a coherent whole, the exterior of my sculptures are intentionally irregular and penetrative, creating a temporal experience of the body that familiar yet unsettling.
