As Agnes Martin said, “Beauty is an awareness in the mind.” Through my work, I seek this awareness for myself, and I also seek to convey it to the viewer.
The materiality of clay is indispensable to the construction of my work. . Intention is crucial to my practice, but perfect control of my process and materials is neither possible nor necessary. Although beauty is an important concern in my work, ugliness also plays a crucial role. I am interested in the ugliness behind beauty, and the beauty behind ugliness. My work is constructed between the beautiful and the visceral. Abstract representation bears a direct connection to the ineffable; it gives us access to emotions and sensations that cannot be put into words.
