The piece references the challenges of containment through opposing structural elements.

"Birthright" consists of two similar forms, each with superficial differences. Both are royal blue on one side & purple on the reverse, showing a division between them based on how they are viewed. One is elevated above for no apparent reason, reflecting on social privilege & questioning inequality.

“Underpinning” shows two iterations of a grid system, 1 that is supported structurally & a 2nd that has been stretched, distorting the geometry. The work examines what happens if a form is supported, & what happens if it is stretched thin, illustrating a social divide & the need to support all.

An architectonic structure that could be seen as housing and favoring groups of people based on gender, race, & individual identity is topped with an optimistic "Sunny Side Up" view of progress that has been made & continues to be made.

NEW WORK: 

My art addresses current issues through concept-based work. Utilizing architectonic structures and grids, the spatial compositions examine how systems facilitate and/or limit opportunity, autonomy and mobility. Process and formal choices serve as a metaphor for ideas conveyed through a universal language that transcends the specific, allowing the viewer’s participation within the created framework.

 

Containment and Immure suggest current social restrictions. Tension between the bursting interior and the solid barrier simultaneously suggests prevention of transmission and frustrated desires to connect.

 

Underpinning shows two iterations of a grid, one supported through connections and a second stretched thin with no support, distorting the geometry. The work illustrates the consequences of social division and the loss of social support.

Birthright consists of two similar forms with superficial differences. Both are blue on one side and purple on the reverse. Any distinction depends on how they are viewed. One is elevated for no apparent reason, reflecting on and questioning social privilege.
