Shed Series

2018 - present
As forms seem to pull themselves together or break apart, they act as stand-ins for complex personas confronting their environments. Visually these material-driven paradoxes can confuse viewers due to their orderly nature, but the tightness of craft makes the tensions within them quickly felt, yet mysteries for us to ponder further. In this way, material contrasts and connections act as clues.

From upholstered forms and velvet to tree branches, and rocks, I seek ways to express complex negotiations with our edges—our reaches, our landings, our thresholds, … our sense of home.
