Artist's Statement

My work has always developed, unexpectedly, from my relationship and proximity to materials and spaces surrounding me. When I was a child, I found a dead mole in a trap in the garden outside my families home. After studying it and carrying it around with me for the entire afternoon, I placed it beneath an oriental rug in our house. The way the dead mole occupied and redefined the surface/object and its relation to the surrounding space is something I am still interested in exploring in my work. It also provided me with a glimpse of what it meant to be present and not present, here and there. It is a state of in-between; a lightness of presence that lies at the core of my interests today.
