ARTIST STATEMENT
My focus on biomorphic forms stems from my interest in the human encounter with disease. Disease is an experience that radically transforms life through its ability to force a discussion about human suffering and survival. I have witnessed how a devastating disease, while excruciating, can change one’s life in a positive and powerful way. Personal experience and microscopic slides of human tissue influenced my work. Creating textured form, I reference organic growths that explore the relationship between health and disease.

My sculptures explore the temporary symbiotic relationship between healthy and deadly cells in patients who are battling disease. My reference material is alluded to through the use of glass, which parallels the qualities seen in the images seen thru the microscope. The highly textured surfaces imply the growth of disease while yellow, red and amber allude to bodily fluids. Concurrently, the bright quality of the colors used reflects the positive consequences that disease can cause.
