Within my site responsive sculpture, installations, and drawings, I am fascinated with the interplay between the spatial and architectonic conditions of a place. Through an incremental means of building with utilitarian materials, I make objects that explore repetition, mass and void, physicality and weight, compression and release. Within these qualities, I ﬁnd parallels in the physical and psychological states of the body, sensory knowledge, and the human condition. These often pliable materials have an intense relationship to the body, and the capacity to carry traces, memory, and a potent history of former use. My interest in the actions of folding, cutting, and stacking ﬁnds its focus in organization and reduction and makes reference to artistic precedent such as mono-ha and minimalism.
My sculpture and installations have been exhibited extensively in the US where I have taught at the Kansas City Art Institute. My site responsive objects, installations and drawings, respond to the spatial, conceptual and architectonic conditions of a place. I make sculpture of materials with which I have an intimate visceral connection. Industrial felt, found wood, felted wool sweater, soil, bath towels, paper towels, and used hospital towels are materials that I know, have manipulated and coaxed through my hands. They speak to the vulnerability and fragility of the human condition, carry traces of body memory through history of their former use, and create an absorptive silence. My interest in physical actions of folding and stacking finds its focus in organization and reduction and makes reference to artistic precedent such as mono-ha and minimalism.
