My work explores aesthetics and dialectics of material as an alternative confrontation,

a language of the senses- tactility and visuality as a way of speaking;,

an awareness of the dismissed versus the monumental, the valid and the invalidated;

desires for inversion/subversion as a translation and transubstantiation of being. 

I am increasingly immersed in questions of being, of value structures and mutability- its promise, potential and frequent necessity to survival.

As fragile bodies, as entities who build and need social skins and support structures of environment,

I feel an innate empathy with the nonhuman, material and object, and a conflicted and fascinated desire to transmute it.
