I create bulbous, billowing, animated forms that are suggestive of movement in order to enhance the anthropomorphic qualities of stance, attitude, weight, and position that mimic gestural qualities of the human body. Therefore my forms transform through the use of simple, connected contrasting forms that resemble the body such as arms, feet, torso, hips, ears, and bodily adornment. An overall solid color enriches the animate qualities of the form, and finally, a name is applied to the piece that makes a connection between the overall form and color. These simple forms trigger the imagination in order to describe their personality. I encourage an open engagement to create, or to depict the narrative behind the object created.
Illustration of characters on cardboard, these intimate objects interact with the body, which contrast my vessels that mimic it. The use fictional imagery sets a dialogue between viewer, character, and the narrative through incorporating simple lines and tone, that promote in interest in imaginable movement, attitude, and posture.
I allow each piece to grow intuitively through simple sketches. I permit the work to develop through the building process, responding and editing materials and shapes throughout the entire process of making. No matter the object or material, I create personality, posture, and traits that directly relate to the human body and the human psyche. This is a response to the context of the culture, which I am immersed.
