My work has a solid foundation in material and process. I am drawn to the color, texture, and feel of clay. Clays ability to be soft and record marks and movement while also transforming into a hard stone-like material vulnerable to cracks and breakage. I see this way of working as cyclical and returning to the bare essentials of art-making and finding the essence of the material and its structure.
I use clay as a means of expressing my perceptions of time and space. The prevalence of time in my work is activated by present and geological time. I am interested in conceptual abstraction of ceramics as a material. I see clay as both fragile and durable, sophisticated and primitive. I create artwork that reflects natural formations while embracing new technologies and contemporary practices. I derive my conceptual ideas from environmental and political landscapes and respond to my surrounding in whichever setting I find myself in, both physically and mentally.
