Artist Statement

Change occurs where there seemingly is none: bodies of water evaporate, colors fade, and hair grows, all of which supersede our perception and control. By emphasizing visually and sensually perceptible change, I look past the utilitarian regard for the senses as a means to an end.
The optic nerve holds such power over our bodies that it causes us to cringe, love and salivate. In toying with synthetic natural and natural synthetic materials, I explore how we judge, map and create our reality. By creating surface tension, I look deeper past the surface to the support. It seems rigid but is actually fluid.
