I have inherited the male gaze and embraced it. It fills me with a guilt that I enjoy. I recontextualize flesh through the use of animal hides, leather, and synthetics. By placing handmade furniture forms in environments of conflicting sexual tension, I expose and exorcise my need for physicality and carnality. My work serves as a catalyst, recharging memories degraded by repetitive use.
