My work reaches for a combined sense of vulnerability and strength, a duality that underlies all of my art. In sculpture the core material is gauze, and of late tree branches that extend the work to the floor. This inherent fragility is intentional and serves as a metaphor for our own sense of vulnerability, both physical and emotional. This way of working evolved from my own concerns for how people suffer the consequences of trauma inflicted on them, how that thing we call ‘body’ becomes marked by such experience, and how it then carries within it the whole history of what we have lived. I work at a human scale, so that these pieces generate a physical and emotional encounter of being face to face, body to body, with one another, as if it were possible for a conversation to take place, for thoughts to be shared. For this reason, there’s a need for intimacy, so that for a few moments we can feel alone, absorbed in the presence of the ‘other’. And so they’re placed in a subdued and quiet ‘space’, lit from above, creating interplay between light and shadow, and revealing their drama. In drawing, simply graphite and pencil have been my tools, along with a variety of erasers. Muted color is just beginning to appear as well. This work touches upon the tenuous balance, or its loss, that exists and is so central to human relationships. These drawings began as a means for understanding something of the primitive origins of line and mark as they evolved into visual and written language. Out of this, personal meaning has deepened in the drawings that continue to make use of those early origins. Overall, I suppose my focus is on human nature, its vulnerabilities, its will to survive and the subconscious dramas that lie beneath our awareness of both oneself and others.
