My work is a series of fragmented constructions meant to communicate natural loss and the process of self-acceptance. I explore the unintended consequences of unorthodox familial structures. I fragment in order to gain perspective and isolate moments from my past that shine most brightly in my memory. The use of stitching alludes to the repetitive nature of memory and the desire to make sense of the past. In line with counting, my pieces narrate the passage of time and the cognitive dissonance experienced when control is either lost or gained.
I don’t know if my love of art could be chalked up to a single piece, or even a single genre. If my answer is meant to explain my reason for pursuing art, then that is an entirely different question for me. I think the creative spirit and the creative mind is a product of human existence that makes sense to me in a way I can’t describe. My love of art comes from my love of people. Successful artists evolve constantly in order to react to the world around them. They must remain sensitive in order to understand, and subsequently be understood.
