The slight intricacies and rhythms of everyday tasks are ingrained in my artwork. Influences stem from the cyclical nature of life: birth and rebirth. My home becomes a substrate, a sacred space compounding life and art in oneness. I connect deeply with my actions turning daily chores into rituals. Works are relic-like objects often arranged together creating a space for introspection and contemplation.
My materials and habits tend toward everyday objects, multiples, and layers: roots from bushes dug up, materials left from remodeling, the diapers I put on my baby, ashes from moxibustion and scraps of fabric used to drape over doll furniture. Such aspects come together as relics of what has been, tools and instruments of ritual, forms of adornment and mementos of imaginative play. The work's function is to constitute short moments of peace within the chaos of raising a young family. Works reflect the playfulness of children yet harness the stillness that comes late at night when all can be heard is the sweet sound of their breath as they dream.
Grounded in the home and activated by life with young children, the necessary and repetitive tasks of the daily grind are absorbed into my work and reappear to expose the beauty and sacrality of this fleeting time.
For ESAS, I propose a new installation utilizing small sculpture and projection.
