I use sculpture, installation, and metalsmithing processes to examine themes of identity, memory, loss, and perception. Feminine forms connected to my childhood are fetishized through the transformation of patterns of lace, or clusters of flowers into intimate objects and spaces. This repetitive manipulation of the “fetishistic” object uncovers a fascination with contradictory concepts, which allows both fact and fantasy, acceptance and denial to exist side by side. Consistently my works examine what lies within and between the boundaries of otherness and sameness, isolation and intimacy, and the masculine and the feminine.
