Narrative 

As a mixed media artist, my work is a vivid exploration of the interplay between pop culture and the intricate mechanisms of the human psyche. I am captivated by the ways in which psychological defense mechanisms shape our perceptions and interactions with the world. My vibrant, pop art-inspired pieces serve as a visual dialogue, inviting viewers to reflect on the subconscious barriers we erect to protect ourselves.

Working with multiple mediums allows me to capture the fragility and transparency of these defenses. Each piece is meticulously crafted, utilizing a blend of traditional glassblowing techniques and contemporary design elements. The bold colors and dynamic forms echo the energetic and sometimes overwhelming nature of modern life, while the medium itself speaks to the delicate balance between strength and vulnerability.

Through my art, I aim to create space for contemplation and conversation, encouraging a deeper understanding of our internal landscapes. By transforming the intangible into the tangible, my work offers a unique lens through which to view the complexities of human emotion and behavior.

Exhibition Work 

My sculpture explores sociological and psychological processes related to communication and self-preservation through comical representations of everyday objects. I draw inspiration from unique instances or conversations that provoke the act of making. When conceptualizing sculpture, I engage with questions about conceptual objectivity, predisposed psychological interpretation, and materiality. I investigate how specific practical applications of mundane, recognizable objects can generate new sensations, stimulating an internal dialogue with the viewer.

 

This interaction is successful when I alter the materiality, scale, and placement of the objects in a humorous composition, while maintaining their proportions and assumed functionality. The challenging discussions we have about ourselves, particularly in our most vulnerable moments, serve as innovative theoretical inspirations for my work.
