Within an interior space that is void of its inhabitants, there exists a stillness. Amidst the solitude of walls, light travels without human intervention. Shadows form, uncovering the quiet and the unseen in overlooked angles and corners.

Crossing the boundaries of the plane through sculpture, material is transformed through folds and bends into new physical constructs. With light and shadow as drawing tools, I forge relationships between space and time.

emptiness is a photographic series that began as an inquiry into the affects of nature on what we experience. The project evolved over several weeks with overexposed photographic film providing little information, though an occasion for personal interpretation of emotion provoked by environment.
Folds, bends and tears transform the two-dimensional plane into a three-dimensional object. The resulting monochromatic artifacts form the ongoing series, fractured, and include works in paper, ceramic, and photography.

looking is about seeking the invisible, searching for the undetectable. Curiosity, as the spirit of inquiry, encourages us to see the unnoticed.

The photographs in the presence series result from a public performance calling women to join body and voice in a shared experience. Dressed in white, female protagonists walk through mist, quietly humming, intersecting each other’s paths. White attire references historical societal expectations for female purity in conflict with aspirations and hope for a new order. Collective humming becomes the acoustic symbol of female unity, victorious through a common voice, unheard though present, in these photographs.
The imagery takes the viewer from the invisible to a presence, or a quiet force, as women shift the contemporary social construct of gender inequality. As a narrative unfolds, we witness searching, discovery, ascension, and triumph. Through this photographic essay, we experience time suspended, linking our present female story to that of our history, giving rise to our future.
