Statement of Work

The mysticisms I experienced as a child at a Catholic school still hold a great power over me, influencing my art. I make my work in two stages. First I create objects inspired by religion and configure them into a scene. Next, I use my body to create a context and purpose for the objects. By recording these symbolic interactions through the lens of the camera I produce photographs and video to display alongside my objects. This creates a narrative while also heightening the mystery of spiritual purpose.
