My work considers the poetic potential all objects possess. Throughout collection, configuration and construction, my intuition guides a discovery process that uncovers hidden possibilities.
Exploiting the shapes, colors, textures and materiality of various collected objects: glass, fiber, wood, rubber, clay and metal, I devised an innovative approach to an age old practice. As a bowl, vase, planter, post-cap, scrap of fur, piece of rubber, and other objects are brought together into novel, amalgamated forms, their labels and assigned meaning slip away. Through these forms I explore the transformation of meaning that occurs as objects coalesce by an off-script impulse.
As amalgams, they transform the overlooked and commonplace. Altered by new intention, they become charged psychic forms that conjure memories and evoke subconscious associations. They activate the imagination and challenge the viewer to see differently the everyday objects that inhabit our lives.
