I create organic and abstract objects using clay and found materials. Working intuitively, I combine textures to explore points of physical, sensual and conceptual tension. Calling on a sort of adaptive resonance theory, I assemble, carve, stitch, and weave until something otherworldly yet viscerally familiar almost breathes before me.
“Empty” is a mother’s meditation on the passage of time, and quest for reliquary. Where in these grown humans is the mark of my hand, the imprint of my embrace, love and forgiveness?
