Full Artist's statement
My sculptures and collages are currently inspired by the tools of desire: wishes, hopes, effort and intention. These works offer me a means of exploring current conditions and activating hope for an unrealized but longed-for future. I choose materials for their metaphoric or associative meanings; sandpaper, for example, contains a tactile recognition of its erosive function. Both my 2D and 3D forms incorporate a longstanding interest in poetic language.
