Raw Materials: 2009
Often formally concerned with aspects of minimalism, my works develop conceptually around themes of containment, isolation, intimacy and temporality. The objects I represent, often photographically, are transformed by the processes of printmaking allowing these representations to read as both familiar and bodily as well as with aspects of estrangement and alienation.
I have an overwhelming urge to clear out some white space, to bury urgency and contend with stillness. I worry a great deal about this very strange disconnect from the natural which many of us feel and how this distance effects our understanding of what it is to be human. I have an attraction to objects which seem worn and weathered by love. Objects whose fragile nature and delicacy force me to consider my own physical construction.
