Statement

I am interested in the amusement, tenderness, and engagement that objects can instill within us. Informed by how art can act as a facilitator of play, my work explores the sentimental and humorous relationships between humans and objects. Play is central to who I am, to who we are as humans, and to how we understand the world. My sculptural objects create interactive scenarios that can be acted out before the viewer in a video, conveyed through inviting textures and color, or activated through moveable mechanisms. A ceramic paddle and ball game that functions to self-destruct. A sculpture made for kicking plates at one’s leisure. A ceramic helmet hung from a ceiling to be adorned by viewers. Through the sensitivity and lightheartedness of my work, I hope to reanimate the wonder in our relationship with objects.
