Artist Statement

My art practice encompasses print, drawing, textiles, spatial and performative explorations of gesture and repetition. Gesture and repetition both exist in the present, and practices like drawing and printmaking allow one to make and keep a record of this moment, a trace of the body’s existence in that moment. I am particularly interested in one’s endeavour for wholeness or perfection through the repetition of gesture and the pathos of failure in this struggle.
