I think through sculpture, assemblage, installation and performance. I work with tension as creative material in all its forms - physical, social and emotional. I think of my works as interventions that respond to haunting events and intense emotional states. I believe every space, material and object is alive with memory and is as a collaborator in my artmaking process. I believe artworks are texts - like poems or essays - able to investigate questions that relate to universal human themes like intimacy, trauma, memory, empathy and other unseen forces. Like written texts, I make works that require time, intuition and sometimes a little background information to interpret. I believe art is scholarship, with my works sometimes requiring months to research and months to make. Using weaving as a methodology, I am curious to explore how this ancient technology can offer contemporary insights into human patterns.
