My art practice examines consciousness, and ways increasingly-niched individuals survive modern culture within their own, quite distinct senses of reality.
I value unrecognized and redefined beauty, and the interconnectedness between all things. my materials use often reflects a sense of collective consciousness and sacred within the ordinary.
work that accomplishes these things can critically expand the definition of socially engaged art, reinforcing that the health of individuals’ inner consciousness is key to any large-scale change.
much of the work here achieves an intimate, hand-formed quality through the breakage, repair and reconfiguring of recognizable objects - including the body - with primary media: glass, metal wood;skins, fur, leather;and artist-made paper.
Ultimately, I hope a purpose of art is to impicitly heal.
