I strive to establish the beginning of the unfamiliar in my work. My practice is driven by a way of responding to objects as well as the manipulation of their function, bringing about a new potential meaning. The outcome of my work is determined by my surroundings with the intention of outlining important qualities from objects that suggest gestural sensations or mimic basic bodily functions and form.
The human body’s relationship to the space it occupies is something that I find inevitable to emerge when it comes to working with objects. I see this exploration to be analogous to the investigation of my own relationship to ideas of love, autonomy, travel, and escape. These are nonetheless important examples of allegories suggested in the work.
