Artist Statement

We are innately physical creatures, more so I think than we realize.
Somatic, neurological reactions, such as fight or flight, if not
fulfilled, are trapped in tissue, altering the body and lingering as
evidence. I am interested in the corporal manifestations of our
histories and our characters. I hope to better understand the process
and results of this physical remembering, the plasticity of our bodies
in the hands of our experiences.

Thanks to Lauren, Adam, Sally, Tim, and Burke.
