My work examines the relationships between memory, family, identity, and self. The collection, reassembling, and integration of non-traditional materials (i.e. horsehair) with more conventional art mediums and methods aid in the exploration of the continuums between these complex domains. Thinking about and through the body has shaped my art process and studio practice. Human and horse forms establish the experiential space of body as subject, not simply as object.
Drawing upon my equestrian past (and present) horse forms and fragments become the language through which these ideas are explored and articulated. The notion of family and memory, always important elements in my art, have begun to demand a more critical role in recent work, including the collection and reconstructing of memory and the influence of family as the phenomenon that both enables and impedes.
