The sculptures I make emerge from the debris of the quotidian. I pluck abandoned objects from their homeshand-me-down fabric, shards of mirror & scraps of plastic bagswhich carry their history, and like objects orphaned from ritual, seem to me to beg the question: “how did we get here?”. These sculptures are offerings to engage that question in an erotics of encounter. I’m interested in the ways in which corporeal objects outside of the body have an ability to ignite feeling and sensation inside of the body, and in the cultural implications of foregrounding a politics of pleasure. I hope to appeal to the viewer to enter a space where sensual information, misreadings, and doubts occupy the same ground as certainties. I’m interested in the drama that arises when a thing makes its own ground for being and yet, its being may be nothing at all.
