My art practice is a form of witnessing. I work in time-based media (installation, video, artist books, and two and three dimensional works comprised of organic substances) to create experiences and objects that are durational, unfold in space, and/or change physical form. These methods allow alluvial narratives to emerge and describe metamorphosis, often through the gendered body. Engaging with the art of others is integral to my own studio practice. Collaboration, curatorial projects, teaching, and writing are vehicles to explore my understanding of dialogue, narrative, and intertextuality by enlisting other voices.

My most recent work took as subject the relationship between a landscape and a gendered body. The myth of Remus and Romulus was the narrative impetus to explore the constructs of “soldier” and “mother” and to examine a fictive land these figures inhabit and alter. This has garnered deeper inquiry in the landscape’s relationship to itself, and I am currently working on a series of paired/grouped objects that demonstrate different modes of erosion and deposition.

The trace of traumatic history is evident within the surfaces and objects I create. This tension signifies my aim to evoke a visceral response and to elicit a consideration of what it is to be a living subject in an armature of values.
