My research deals with the intangible, unseen, and unnoticed. I explore the ethereal aspects of the human condition through examining my personal and spiritual connection to the natural world. I am curious about the relationship between my body, the earth, and the energetic systems that connect us all. The intention of my work is to create a meditative experience, a moment of contemplation, and a connection between the body and natural world.
I view being an artist as a way in which we attempt to answer the same questions as mysticism- Why are we here? What is our purpose? I find that the structure of both a spiritual and an artistic practice to be synonymous.
I am working through examining the inexorable passage of time, employing the movement of my body in and through space. I utilize the inherent similarities between the way that glass and the weight/mass of the body react to the forces of time and the pull of gravity. Having a background in both Dance and Craft, movement is an intrinsic aspect of my relationship with materials.Whether that be through the trace forms of my movement, the space my body occupies, or archiving the passage of time, I am constantly grappling with my bodies impermanence.
