Artist Statement

My current body of work is a response to the feelings of grief, isolation and the powerlessness of loss. The figures' arms have fallen from their bodies. This is meant to be a symbol for their feelings of helplessness. Several of the characters have traded their arms for wings in an attempt to escape their overwhelming situation, but the gifted wings are too small to be helpful. Other characters cling desperately to the fallen limbs in an attempt to maintain their fragile sense of self. Several of them have the heads of fish or birds to symbolize their lose of self as they become creatures driven by instinct rather than logic.

Most of my finished work has a rough gestural construction. With the standing figure, I wanted create something that has a more delicate, vulnerable feel, while still maintaining the desperate quality of my other work. She is meant to represent the fragile hope we cling to in a world that no longer makes sense.
