ARTIST STATEMENT

My work focuses on the seemingly unending process of repairing and rebuilding one's self. I 'mend' or knot simple fibers and thread together in a meditative and obsessive manner. The work gradually becomes a visual accumulation — a visual record — of the time it takes to heal. Each moment, each struggle amasses and blends and eventually becomes impossible to distinguish. Looking back, the viewer sees that this fundamental human undertaking is simultaneously strong and fragile, messy and disciplined, heavy and light. This work tries to find comfort in such fraught moments.
