Women in all their complexity- floating, dreaming, holding on, wanting, needing, falling- revealing both their strength and vulnerability in an increasingly complex world.
My wire sculptures reference the female form and function as drawings as well. Wire magically becomes line in space, changing in character and becoming messages from within. The wire functions to create a tension- as in the expression “wired”- while also conveying both strength and fragility. The sculptures are delicate and have words embedding in their “skin”. These words give the viewer the sense of eavesdropping on someone’s secret obsessive thoughts.
Mixed media works on paper combining words and collage, and mixed media drawings with collage further explore issues of identity and aging.
