Artist Statement

 

My work moves between figuration and abstraction, evoking the body's presence through it's trace, gesture, and movement through space. Larger images are created from small fragments of the body: multiplied, pieced back together, transformed. I intend to challenge and redefine the limitations of our corporeal body.

 

My approach to drawing and printmaking comes from my experience in performance and process-oriented art. For the “Body Print Mandalas" Series I created rubber casts of parts of my body, using these self-made tools, as well as my body itself, to generate imagery. In these works I am taking the body apart in fragments with the intent to weave them together in new and more “wholistic” ways. The “Intimacies” Series focuses on the heart shapes created by my lips and pubic area, evoking the fragility of memory, touch and the associated emotional resonance they carry.
