Statement

I am drawn to familiar objects, symbols of security and intimacy, known to us from ordinary domesticity. In my work, I am involved in an investigation of the interaction between physical, mental, and social spaces.

In previous projects, objects such as furniture and toys were deconstructed and then reconstructed. Their interiorwas exposed, their functionality was questioned, and their intimacy was violated.

Later, I have been digitally enlarging back to life size, familiar dime-store figurines such as toy soldiers, Cowboys and Indians and plastic bride-and-groom that tops wedding cakes.

In the current  projects I am again interested in exposing that which we choose not to, or don’t want to, see. The deformities, irregularities, and mass-production markings embedded in familiar objects. By enlarging them from their miniature size to a life-size scale, and by emphasizing their irregularities and odd proportions, I hope that viewers may see the ‘familiar’ in a different light. And, uncover hidden, and sometimes uncanny, meanings within these icons, symbols, and stereotypes
