Statement

My work explores ideas of the internal and external struggles of the human body. The question of why the body’s immune response attacks itself and what this might look like under a creative lens informs my approach and exploration. It is a visual investigation of my personal experiences, research, and fascination regarding the misdirected inclinations of the body. Many aspects are examined, from studying the battle that occurs within, to questioning the intentions and results of modern day medicines and treatments. My work is inspired by reality and confronts unknowns that defy explanation by modern science.

Through the manipulation of unconventional materials, my work depicts symbolic shapes and forms that are invented through looking at microscopic imaging, medical machines, and observing the interconnectivity of nature. The parallel between nature and the intrusive nature of medicine signal my interest in synthetic resources and organic forms.
