Artist Statement

I am interested in the limitations of cognitive recall and how one’s grasp of these impressions defines life. My recent work deals with memory and its loss through deterioration, excavation, and reconstruction. I explore spatial avenues of process-based memories and familial experience using materials native to the domestic sphere and comforts of childhood. These works use elaborate pattern and basic line to represent memory in its stages of erasure and recovery.
