My art practice looks into the experience that occurs as a result of the artistic interaction between the body and material. I examine “expressive objects”- a manifestation of this process that embody a sense of emotion and engagement beyond their physical form. Drawn to asymmetrical shapes and forms found in nature, I find myself constantly exploring their various combinations and repetitions, all in an effort to attain a sense of subjective balance. I work with locally sourced materials, usually repurposed or recycled, characterized by tactile surfaces, plasticity, and impermanence - paper, textile, wood. I aim to facilitate a dialogue between the physical and emotional realms, to create a safe space for contemplation and reflection.
