I began as a mixed media artist experimenting with materials as diverse as glass, cement, wire, wood, fabricated metal, paint, found objects, bronze as well as fabric and handmade paper in my sculptures. I also enjoyed the unique challenge of incorporating metal, cord and “found” objects” in my acrylic and oil paintings. I was open to all manner of useable objects; the final choice was tied to the content of the work itself, so that the finished piece was a balance blend of content, form and meaning. Underlying this work was a love of texture, touch, and permanence, which has focused my current artwork to primarily bronze sculptures and textured paintings.
My work addresses specific issues regarding the female body. Through an exploration of my own experience and psyche I consider western culture’s definition of physical beauty, the idealized body, and the commodification and objectification of the female human form. “Corset” reflects the obsession to obtain the culturally defined ideal body through modification of women’s own physical body.
I bring my own definition of feminism to my work, striving to revalue women as creative subjects while critiquing aspects of patriarchy.
