Workexchange Artist - Past

My work sets the stories of our crafted lifestyles into stone.The content explored often comes from digital personas, lives that exist in a liminal zone between dream and desire, enveloping our storied presence in traditional ceramic material. The uncanny, dream-like state is made permanent, a world that visits the familiar but entertains the absurd. These works critique the “societal propaganda” in advertisement and magazine that are meant to appeal to women which become devices that constrain them into the housewife persona. Like a garden transports both mind and body into a more primal sense of the world, the space that is invented transports the mind into a realm of potential and exploration. It is a space that only exists between dream and reality, a state of lucidity that exploits what we know and conflates it with what could possibly exist.
