Artist Statement

 

   

     My work explores the fragility of human memory and its subjective nature therein. As time passes our recollection of people, places, or objects shift and become different from what may have been. With my art, I attempt to create an interpersonal dialog about this fragility.

     In using antiquated and re-purposed objects in my sculpture I find an inherent sense of familiarity present within each item. Primarily working with glass, I attempt to distort the object’s previous history through means of repetition and replication. Utilizing the transparent qualities of glass, a shift occurs from what the item had been, to a ghostly image of what it has become. I find a sense of delicacy in this translucency which parallels the fragility of our recollection or perception of the past.
