Artist Statement
Our bodies consist of two overarching components, the external surface and the entity of self that exists within it. The visible and the invisible. These pieces partake in a mandatory coalescence that both merge and writhe within how the whole of a person is read. The question of how the relationship of the internal and external collide is what fuels my need to create. My renderings typically begin with participation from an external source. This participation can have to do with others offering an answer to question posed, gathering source material from other bodies, or asking others to interact with my own. What is gained from these interactions is translated into visual text through the exploration of rendering and physical materiality. The component of duality in the external versus internal is further perpetuated through this exploration, merging conceptual metaphor into the properties of the material and the process itself.
