My work explores the interaction between dualities within material and form. Installations examine architecture, enclosures, and the relationship between space and viewer. The interaction between light, shadow, and texture within each installation is considered. Research includes investigating contemporary and ancient architecture with an emphasis on aesthetic intent. Strong columnar forms are interpreted from ancient as well as contemporary examples. Metal wire is often included in the weaving along with nylon monofilament to enhance interaction with ambient light. Questions such as the comfort level of an enclosure, scale in relationship to the viewer, and organic versus rigid forms are addressed within this body of work.
Other pieces consider the interactions of individuals on a more intimate basis. How one considers oneself perceived by their peers, how they place themselves in society; all of these nuances are fascinating when abstracted in an art form, transcending the potential mundane of the everyday.
