About the Exhibition:
"My sculptural installations develop intuitively after a process of material investigation and research. My use of organic forms, simplified structures, and commonplace materials are representative of both the built and unbuilt landscape. Shadows in my work are as important as the physical constructions – echoing the tangible objects, as well as the psychological layers of self and the metaphysical world. I combine light and shadow and black and white to evoke a sense of absence and reflection in both the literal and metaphorical sense.
Throughout our lives, we encounter space that is draped in layers of past events and personal experiences. I understand place as perceptually transformed space that holds personal significance. We pass through place and interact with it, which in turn forms who we are. We create intimate psychological and physical bonds with our surroundings and I am interested in the subconscious influences of place and liminal or transitional spaces. I believe place can be found in both the tangible and metaphysical world and that the liminal moments between these places can offer new perspective and opportunity for discovery.
In-Between Place, will involve a series of sculptural installations that investigate place and liminal space. A series of installations, invite moments of reflection and pause while exploring spatial and psychological relationships between perception, memory, ritual, the ethereal, and the physical environment. Through the work I promote engagement, observation, and questionings of oneself and one’s surroundings by unraveling how we interact with the world as we sense it."
