When I use objects I see them as a vocabulary of feelings. My work explores intuitively my various stages of feminine awareness.
It examines the female form, genderroles, relationships, sexuality and interconnectedness. Through the recycling andjuxtaposition of various objects (forgotten, discarded and seemingly worthless), I am attempting atransformation towards a preciousrecollection. Resurrecting memories, collective yet intimate, visceral yet tender....piecing together beauty as if telling a story. I am inviting the viewer to explore their childhood innocence and fantasies through their adult nostalgia and sensuality. I hope to create a romantic and playful portrait of the female identity with the possibility of entering dreams: my own or someone else's, as when a child plays dress up....full of the yearnings for beauty and mystery. -
