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.
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.
