My work is motivated by my interest in psychology. In particular, I am interested in how we bring together the information our sensory observations provide into narratives that we use to define who we are and what we come to believe about the world we live in. The knotted forms in my art represent the ways our thinking becomes connected to our past experiences - the way we develop our perspective and subjective history. As for the corporeal elements seen in my work, they can be animated or paralyzed by our thoughts, and adversely they can be manipulated by our actions. It is about taking control and giving up control. Generally, what interests me is how this entirely subjective experience is what we share with others, and it is also what makes us uniquely different from one another. When another person truly “gets you”, it’s like they’ve crossed this great chasm and reinforced what it means to be human.
