 Paradoxically, my sculptures act as both static, fetishized objects as well as stand-ins for emotive bodies. They commingle together in space, creating abstract scenes, as if actors on a stage. The scenes consist of multiple sculptures arranged on a handmade platform shallowly set against a painted backdrop. Within each grouping, my character-like sculptures are simultaneously actors and propsfrozen in movement as well as remnants of ritual.

Scene 1

Comprised of the following sculptures (clockwise starting in bottom left):

if you don’t, just let me go (2018)

i’m prepared to let you go (2017)

holding back the two of us (2018)

made of steel, made of stone (2017)

Scene 2

Paradoxically, my sculptures act as both static, fetishized objects as well as stand-ins for emotive bodies. They commingle together in space, creating abstract scenes, as if actors on a stage. Through the use of placement, color, materiality, scale, and form, the scenes playfully explore personal states of being in relation to my physical and psychological surroundings. Each set is treated as a mise en scène, comprised of multiple sculptures arranged on a handmade platform shallowly set against a painted backdrop. The character-like sculptures are simultaneously actors and propsfrozen in movement as well as remnants of ritual.
