I make work the inquiries into the relationships between human understanding, language, memory, and domestic life. It is a process of exploration and discovery; one which contemplates the way experiences are perceived and then expressed through objects.
I have always been intrigued by the connections that exist between language and objects. I explore this in my work through the manipulation of function in household furniture. Pre-linguistics refers to the stage of development before speech has been formed, in which communication exists only in the crudest forms. The use of plaster, used furniture, fabric, and watercolors seek to create expressions that linger between the familiar and the not yet fully formed. Function and form are distorted, exposing the interiors of these structures, like open wounds. These other worldly environments evoke a sense of vulnerability and discomfort.
