Abstract

My legs, fingers and arms activate and build my working material. The sculptures and installations I create are the result of the repetitive actions I engage to make. My work is both a result and symbol of my body’s motion. My dedication to material exploration and the processes I develop and discover through this sustained work allows me to see, describe, and affect my surroundings. Placing, stuffing, wrapping and covering are all potential applications of my material of choice, used bed sheets. I recognize the direct result of the involvement of my body in motion. I construct work that is marked quite literally with my own physical activity.
