My work investigates the role of objects and images as carriers of meaning and explores the role of layered images in the construction of metaphorical landscapes. Ordinary objects like flowers, teacups, bottles, and toys are some of the subjects and images within my work that come together to create larger, open narrative. The relationships in the work between sculptural pieces and found objects are meant to leave space for the viewer and allow them to find themselves, their memories and associations. Through the tactile replication of objects and forms, the viewer is able to create their own connections between seemingly disparate images. The pieces create layers of meaning with an emphasis on the density and hidden forms within the work. My goal is to create a visually playful experience where meaning and narrative is created with each individual experience. The works are meant to show themselves in layers of information that take time to reveal themselves to the viewer.
