Someone at a Whitney opening gave me a short lecture about art. One of the things that they told me was that art comes from ~here and ~here, pointing to their crotch and their heart. I decided that is a perfect description of where my art comes from, and I would also add a pointer to my deep gut. My work is brutally honest, with a hilarious dark humor. I make sculptures that span the evolutionary trails and foundations of contemporary social and cultural identity. I generally use cast silicone to make my pieces, though recently I’ve incorporated found materials like plastic shopping bags and aluminum foil.
