I create small forms, bodies, transformed gradually through shifting time and energy. The experience, the journey of these forms is defined in their aging process. My forms experience mimicry of the aging process the human body undergoes and perform correlations between the physical experiences. Through association the inherent beauty, strength, and vulnerability in the various processes of aging and evolving is revealed in the captured moments in the lives of these forms.
Through associations with taste we may learn to identify ingredients in a dish by teasing apart the experience - isolating flavors - and through reflecting upon past experiences identify their origins. In seeing art, feeling, knowledge and the past combine, in teasing apart this combination we can identify the origins within ourselves, learning and deepening our understanding of ourselves, of and in time, and in space.
