Richmond, Virginia USA
I am interested in knowledge; specifcally how information is passed from one generation to the next. Book-like forms are used as a metaphor for the conduit in which knowledge is transferred. I relate these pieces and their creation to the transformation from life to death, as seen in the stages of a woman’s life which is a symbolic reference to the nymph, mother, and crone.
My working process also emulates the cycle of life. Each piece is delicately bound and shaped to create a form that reflects organic materials, such as leaves, petals, and pods.
These structures are then transformed and shaped through the powerful and destructive elements of fire, water, and air. Construction and destruction of the pieces emphasizes the brevity of its existence from one stage of life to another. Each form is meant to capture the beauty, pain, and release that I associate with the process leading to death.
