My most recent work uses forms, such as drapery and stylized botanicals and electronic devices, to block out, cover, and hide parts of the human form. These compositions become a negation, a censoring or denial of what lies beneath. These anthropomorphic beings appear at once, powerful and powerless, beautiful and absurd, inflated, and amputated.
The Consumption Series consists of psychological portraits that address ideas of consumption and personal obsession using irony, humor and vibrant color. Using a combination of traditional metalsmithing processes, such as raising and die-forming as well as industrial processes such as laser-jet cutting, this work aims to merge contemporary enameled imagery with traditional forms.
