About the Artist
My overall vision for my work is to simulate the gesture and sensibility of a figure into systems that extend outside of the body but still allude to it. A pipeline system is the perfect illustration of this. Normally this network exists to transport natural resources and is dependent upon the consumer's demand. However, in my pipeline systems, I imagine the pipes are disrupted, disturbed, and unable to perform the function they were intended for. The pipes that I make become a metaphor for malfunctions within our own bodily systems. Not only do they mimic the gesture of a wilted body they also mimic the wilting and malfunctioning of the internal structure within the body. Similar to pipelines that are often invisible and underground, I want to reinvestigate the scars buried so deeply in my mind and body. I believe bringing my pipes above ground to the surface will uncover a veil- showing the malfunction, the uncertainty, and exhaustion they have endured over the years.
