The female form, and my own biological phenomenon inform my work. The concept of family reproduction is part of my genetic blueprint. For some women, uncontrollable circumstances can impact these cultural expectations. The wonders, but challenging facets within my body has led me to work abstractly as I ponder fecundity. While doing so, the work represents different stages of ovarian follicles and the human embryo. The multiplying notion of follicles gives emotion a physical form. As I conceal intimate moments and reveal joyous hopes, my work attempts to act as a counterbalance between veiled sentience and exposed emotions. Through the use of scale, my sculptures embrace physical transformation and depict a deeper correlation with my own body and these sentiments.
Through abstraction I’m able to find visual simplicities that are romantic, stimulating and beautiful, like an effortless reflection of light off a metallic surface. My work uses this aesthetic language as a way to contemplate hope, fear, and longing. Through making, I translate my fears into optimism by creating works that attempt to fill my void.
