Through my recent sculptures and installations I explore coming to terms with human mortality and the concept upheld by British existential therapist Emmy Van Deurzen that there are 4 dimensions to one’s self: the physical, the social, the personal, and the spiritual. I have always had a fascination in human-object relationships and how a simple material object can be incredibly powerful in evoking emotions in a person. I use this perceived emotional power of material objects to create mixed-media and found object based pieces to demonstrate the immaterial concepts of internal interactions and disconnections between these personal dimensions.
