My work examines the physical and emotion through formal elements of organic control. I am interested in the ways our bodies react to emotional stimuli and the way emotions manifest themselves as physical feelings. I find that this subject matter is universal, and specific. Everyone can relate to the pain of a broken heart or the elation of first love, but the memory of these things is unique to the person who experiences this. My work strives to communicate both the physical and the emotional. Working in installation sculpture, my work has physical presence and it occupies space, just like our bodies do. I make work that is not meant to be simply hung on a wall, but to be involved with the space it occupies. My work deals with formal elements organic control, usually several small organic shapes that are contained or controlled in some way. By exerting control over the shapes, the piece indicates a level of emotional containment and oneness, where our bodies and emotions are intimately involved in one another.
