, artist statement

These works are offerings. These offerings are corporeal, they are contained within bodies, within forms. Similar to a womb, they can be empty but whole. The work is focused on questions pertaining to the body as a temporal vessel, the spirituality of objects, and material symbolism. These offerings attempt to activate the subversive power of various devotional practices.
