Art Narratives of Body, Science and Civics
I toy with delineations between natural systems and manufactured conventions. I do this within light of domesticity, physiology and neurobiological science.
So, my work is a continuum happening inside and outside the studio because the care I put into creating art, concerns the care I put into mothering a young daughter exploring independence, and a son, whose physical disabilities and medical frailties magnify dependencies.
My mixed-media process blends these exercises as artist and caretaker, where private performances oscillate into something tangible through multiple materials that pass through my hands in both roles.
It is a practice of body, science and civics.
