Studio Resident (2011 - 2014)
Statement of Work
My work displays single or multiple emotions drawn from photography and the stories of those that may not have the voice or strength to tell their story. I find it interesting to pull an emotion from a photograph to use as inspiration for my movement. I often question what the subject was feeling at the exact moment the picture was taken and I work to abstract that emotion into movement. The photograph was just one second of this person’s life; the dance ideally takes place in that one specific moment.
I enjoy people. I find that I often draw inspiration from stories of those who have something to say, something that could possibly change the way others think of themselves as well as others.
