I seek unity between
By swapping materials and textures to change the way objects are inherently seen, my work tampers with the natural order of an object. Working with materials such as wood, glass, and metal, I incorporate processes that are meticulous, habitual, and freeing. Each process has a period of control and relinquishment that allows a mixture of discovery and decisive reaction. Materials are fabricated together to contradict one another. Areas of organization are often interrupted or paired with organic and fluid details.
Conceptually influenced by the human body, I search to evoke emotional connections and expressions without the need of a realistic form. Inspired by figure-focused photography, I extract the emotions and body language of the portrayed individual and enhance it through abstract pattern. This process is derivative of my personal struggles and experiences. At a young age, I learned the importance of body language because of its necessity in equestrian training. Becoming aware of my own gestures and others around me incites my interest in the figure and encourages exploration of formal systems and emotional ties.
