Artist Statement


 

I have a curiosity about 'leftover' faith, places where things collect, suspension of disbelief (moments of buoyancy tied to chance and taste) and the capricious nature of personal belief systems.
Materials include cut and torn masking tape, thread, fabric and sanded paper, often mounted to glass.

I'm inspired by situations that highlight the intersection between comfort, privacy and embarrassment - responses that are out of our control based on history that always remains as a trace. 

My most recent work explores the boundaries and architecture around, between and within people. Inspired by city maps, honeybee navigation charts and human genome maps, references also extend into the tracking methods of larger group identities, conflating the boundaries of the body with geographic boundaries, underscoring the inauthenticity of maps that can never tell a complete story and the reduction of an individual to a genetic map.
