Sculpture, drawing, and environmental art

Artist Statement

My recent work portrays how environmental space penetrates the body, creating relationships among individuals, species, and objects. These relationships undermine simplistic borderlines between our bodies and the space around us and radically challenge our imagined separateness from the world. Within the respiratory system, the “outside” is always already “inside,” rendering such distinctions ambiguous and problematic. My current works represent the intimate connections that the spaces of the respiratory system form among individuals and the environment by inverting space and form: the forms represent the space within and between bodies, while the space around the forms implies the bodies’ absence.
