Artist Statement
The Cyclical Glow
The concept of family reproduction is part of my genetic blueprint. For some women, uncontrollable circumstances can impact these cultural expectations. The wonders, but challenging facets within my own body has led me to work abstractly. While doing so the work represents different stages of the human embryo and gives emotion a physical form. As I conceal intimate moments and reveal joyous hopes, I ponder veiled and exposed emotions. With the use of scale my work inhabits these notions and embraces the physical transformation of these sentiments.

Through abstraction I’m able to find visual simplicities that are romantic, stimulating and beautiful, like an effortless reflection of light off a metallic surface. My work uses this aesthetic language as a way to contemplate hope, fear, and longing. Through making, I translate my fears into optimism by creating works that attempt to fill my void.
