Narrative

In my sculptures, I aim to capture a moment or the trace of a memory by incorporating specific objects and geographic references. I am interested in how we assign meaning to objects and places through these memories and experiences. Using metaphor and timeless narratives, I seek to create environments of eccentric juxtapositions that invite contemplation and recollection. I utilize visual elements such as plants to represent growth, braided hair to symbolize the passage of time, fish and birds to illustrate flight, migration and nesting. My studio process is composed of both the curiosity for the medium’s complex chemistry and the clays inherent ability to take any form.
