Memory. Loss. Trauma. Pain. Love. Anger. Thrill. Anxiety. Obsession. Seeking Connectivity. Constructing Consciousness. I am a compilation of knowledge, experiences and beliefs being constantly broken up and rearranged throughout life’s unexpected turns. Everything that is now is what is past accumulated. A visual exploration of moments from my life, manifested through a visceral \ exploration of surface and material. The work explores the rhythm of my body moving in space, flailing in frustration, searching for meaning in past memories; information fragmented and compiled from the past to inform the present and fantasize of the future. The sensation of being in my body, of being aware of my breathing, of feeling the weight of existence on my chest. The beautiful chaos of it all: analyzed, deconstructed, reconsidered. A fascination with human inconsistencies and peripheral remnants of materials, marks and stains carrying bits of unspoken stories. Material has meaning. Bedsheets carry an element of intimacy. Shower curtains a moment of privacy, vulnerability. Wood a structural integrity. Fabric an ephemerality. There is a history on the surface. An impression; an interaction of space, with both the potential and limitation of the body. I am a specimen up for consideration. “Insecurity is the illusion that this is only happening to you.”
