Gestation | 22″ x 30″ | Crayon, Ink on paper | 2021
No matter the medium, I approach making as an act of finding from a source in unconscious drawing. Ink and water allows the unconscious to spill fast and freely onto a surface, then with a tool such as a crayon I am able to slowly attempt to make sense of the spill. Clay’s plasticity allows me to have both a slow, meticulous interaction as well as fast and immediate interjection. This duality of speed allows for forms to grow out of an unconscious state. Images of the body will often arise and I do not avoid this. My aim is to confront my own embarrassment and create an open experience of bodily forms as one would look upon the forms of plants or fungi and have an expansive conversation around the psycho-sexual impact of these forms.
