Artist Statement

My work orbits around my adaptation to a new habitat. My interest in using brick is rooted in a consideration of my Serbian home. I perceive brick as the foundational material for homebuilding, as well as a metaphor for the people responsible for my own groundwork. Through material syntheses of wax and brick, for instance, I aim to join the fragile, delicate, and ephemeral with the strong, durable, and unbreakable.
