A Shared Connection

Sculpture has the capacity to become more like us than other art forms because of the way it shares the space we experience it in. For the viewer, a potential for intersubjective communication exists in works that evoke a sense of pathos in relation to the human form through particular material choices. One can never truly know another person’s emotional life. However, through the process of art making, I strive to create openings that allow the viewer to be fully present and to bring their full self to the experience and to share in the completion of these objects.
