Statement

 

Artist Statement

 

Have you ever felt like you must do something because of who you are? Not who you are specifically, but who you are in society: mother, boyfriend, co-worker . . . 

Do these definitions help us fit into society or hold us back from who we truly are? 

My work navigates these questions illustrating the tension between who we are and who we think we should be. They speak about the forces in modern culture that paradoxically both bind and shape our experiences giving us both boundaries that hinder and structures to grow from. Natural materials, more akin to skin and hair, depict the intimate mark these forces have on the development and care of the self.

Within this web of societal demands, personal dreams, and the needs of reality; stressful tensions and beautiful predicaments are found. The taming and weaving together of these opposing forces, a critical step and constant feat, defines growth within a person’s life.
