Circle Series Line No. 1
This piece is composed of transformed disposed remnants of material life, created first individually and then composed into a line. Through age-old techniques, such as embroidery, each little "impermanent sculpture" captures a sense of detail, craftsmanship and tactility. The use of materials such as fabric, entrails, wax, paint and plaster alter the utilitarian, commonplace or mass-produced object into something precious.
Space and relationship are important aspects of the work, as I hope to convey the interconnectedness of our mental and physical processes. (Circle Series) Line No. 1 honors the sacred nature of daily life, creating a resting place between impermanence and permanence, between vulnerability and control.
