Artist's Statement

My current body of work addresses issues of dimension, material, touch and physicality. For years now most of my work has attempted to note and document minor incremental spaces and dimensions that exist between the two and three-dimensional planes. These minor increments are typically areas inhabited and defined as bas relief.
“Physicality” serves as an umbrella under which many of the ideas for this work derives. These range from issues of gender and vulnerability, to our treatment of the physical and emotional “self” versus our treatment of the earth. By combining the use of fabric with shapes that tempt us to poke, pull and prod, it is intended that the viewer will be more fully engaged, their curiosity awakened, their “selves” further explored.
