My work draws on the nature of fabric that is evocative and intensely personal in its ability to suggest human presence or absence. It explores different aspects of fragility, memory, and the transience of time. Heightened shadow and strong shafts of light illuminate detail and imbue a quiet suggestion of human presence, the stillness of the moment and the lingering trace of a treasured memory.
"I began looking at fabric as an expression of the most basic elements of what it means to be human, as a symbol of life and universal humanity, thinking about the way fabrics conceal and reveal. As I explored the folds and gathers of the fabrics and the negative space around the form, I became increasingly fascinated by the idea of what was hidden, forgotten, lost. It's as if the fabrics have power to suggest another place and time.”
