Tell The Truth. Seduce The Material. Trust Your Hands.

I am propelled by the fragile quiet moments of us. The vulnerable, the gentle, and the exacting. We gesture into the world through repetition and ritual – small precise utterances of action and creation that say “we are here.”

We are the fog horn sounding – marking our shores.

We the conjugation of the infinitive and this is not always such a bold move. It is often:
I look              They carry
You sleep           You(pl) hold
He/she/it stands    We breath

A counterpoint to a world otherwise bellowing and blaring and these careful ways we live laced with longing or hope or disappointment or stains.

This is where the work comes from. Works on paper and silk and repetitious performances and textile based installations that I mean to have quietly proclaiming something tenuous and true; something real and honorable and a little sorry.
