Raised in the United States where materialism breeds categorization and segregation even disdain, my work focused from the body is directed towards acceptance. My investigations are centered in but not limited to the mid-torso. The handwork techniques largely attributed to women are a strong element in my palate. I use these methods as medium as well as concept.
Linking in the Round (LIR) is a continuing series created by crocheting cotton string. The title simply describes the process of making. The individual texture, form and folds blossom from the chaos inherent in all process. The action of time and gravity on these works references the action of the same on our bodies.
