I work between genres of drawing, sculpture, painting, video, photography and installation to explore notions of ephemerality, fragility, impermanence, and spirituality of materials.The process and approach to the material and the meaning shifts as a result of the interaction of the material and the hand as well as the intentionality of the act behind it. It is the interaction and connectedness to the materials, the respect for materials, and the tactility between the hand and the matter that expose relationships between human and material worlds. I am interested in the dialogue created around the shifts in meaning, value and beauty that come into play. I am interested in how the viewer experiences transformation in meaning and value of the original materials utilized in relation to their intended purpose or function–—how viewers relate to everyday materials in a new way.
