statement
My work contemplates the experience of the bereaved. Beginning with my own experience with death in my family, I express the aftermath of tragedy.
As I reflect on the place where my family was once whole, I compulsively make objects in order to repair and restore what has been lost. Repetitive elements and processes express a sense of time and a desire to reconcile with a long-distant past. Fueled by a fear of forgetting, the laborious stitching, twisting, and tying of materials record my efforts to hold onto the deceased.
The objects I create provoke awareness and understanding of the experience of the bereaved in an effort to convey the trials of personal loss and the struggle for resilience in its wake.
