My art practice is to create growing and changing skins.

Objects are often residues left over from all forms of transfer. In this transition, the host leaves evidence of skin, scales, scars, scars, debris, cuts, residues, or shedding that is independent of the host. Objects are always non-specific and non-representative, but are intentionally constructed to retain their own sovereignty and dignity.

My intention is to present these organic objects as part of an ensemble scenario where they are separate but form part of a group.
Each object has memory embedded in its structure. Objects are not clearly recognizable and do not represent anything, forcing viewers to use their own collective experience to decipher subjective and emotional sights.

The viewer experience of the objects makes them part of the artwork separately and collectively.

I want my objects to be experimental, incomplete, hostile, and vulnerable.
