My work is driven by process, research, and experimentation. I create abstract narratives of unseen, hidden spaces, and am drawn to giving voice to inanimate and contra-personified object-beings. Often, I use textile fibers as reference to depict elements of the interior human body. Through drawing, prints, and sculptures, I create handcrafted nets that portray hidden visceras, bones exploding with the memories of their vibrations, and muscles wrapped on spools for use as specimens. The "gore" exhibited in my work is ambiguous and uses muted, sinewy colors. White prevails as binding connective tissues. Bubble gum pinks stand in for forbidden interior softness. Often abstracted and teased apart, I create fantastical landscapes that depict a low-fi sci-fi world of shifting internal bodily bondage. Dehumanizing the human form allows the potential to reconstruct its narrative through a set of feminist, material-centric ideals. My work guesses at the smallest of these reorganizations, examining the recontextualization of microscopic fibers of tissues. These investigations invoke a materialism of the body through familiar, yet unexpected substance.
