Artist statement

As a sculptor my work explores personal relationships, mental states and traumas creating uneasy visual experiences and installations. Animals such as birds, bees and deer and objects such as tables and hunting tools often are key elements. The deer portray the dominant members of my family and myself, the fawn. Using a wide range of materials such as plaster, clay, fabric and aluminum each character is made using a different material based on my emotional connection and personal practicality to it and its visual effects in space. The installations immerse the sculptures in intense color that is selected based on the animal’s perception of color, recreating a similar experience for humans to perceive. In doing so, my work invites self-contemplation by viewers through anthropomorphism, being able to project their own personal relationships, mental states and traumas onto these intensely delicate images.
