Verbal Evasion
30 x 7 in.

People are bound by constraints of past experiences or memories. These experiences bind individuals to a variety of patterns of behavior that often provide internal struggles, limited personal growth, or self-destructiveness. Those who address these patterns may question certain behaviors due to the lack of memory accuracy or historical truth.

Through my art, I communicate introspections into past experiences. My current series represents the ongoing struggle to find a clear understanding of past experiences and the need to overcome encompassing restrictions. These pieces symoblize a response which is often the result of multiple problematic factors.

A recurring form in my work, the cocoon-like shape, symbolizes a protective envelope which retains experiences. It is what stores the degree to which a memory is historically accurate and has remained available. The objects surrounding the cocoon represent individualized experiences.
