'a drop in a sea of drips', 2019

a dance of material, form, and metaphor that developed from an interest in exploring idealized fantasies around notions of significance and frivolity, artificial and real. it explores the porosity and malleability of the aesthetics of these narratives as recorded in plastic and rigid materials; making mortal the weight of sentiment and history as bodily felt through visual encounter.
