Whether fleeting or lingering, everything is impermanent. I am drawn to ideas of the infinite and the inconsequential, often wondering about the tangibility of our short existence and the passing moments within it. I am also attracted to the ephemeral qualities of nature – drifting cloud formations, cyclical tidal patterns, shifting light and shadows. The constant growth and decay that occurs in the environment over time captivates me as well as abstract beauty in the deterioration of matter.
I manipulate hair, paper, and other organic materials into subtle forms and landscapes, constructing pieces through the accumulation of tiny cell-like fragments or voids and creating volume within membranes that may be porous or intact. I enjoy the quiet intimacy of small-scale work and savor the contact of my hands with materials and the meditative nature of the processes.
