My artworks deal with multiple dualities inherent in the human condition. Historical references are contrasted with modern elements to express a collective sense of what we have become. I utilize materials that have relevance beyond the material’s basic decorative function, striving to conflagrate the narrative, process and material. Yin and yang, the balanced concept of female and male duality, seems to be dramatically out of balance due to the subjugation of the feminine to the masculine in our global society. This is exemplified by the tragic gendercide of over 100-million girls in the last 20 years, which is the impetus for my current work.
