Description

The creations are an extension from the person. Our hearts are protected by the ribs, and sealed with flesh. Our flesh covers our feelings and inner wounds. We can't see much of what is going on in someone's life from the outside, but from the inside it's a different story. In life we encounter storms, but if we work through our struggles; we can find the light in darkness. There is a necessity to adapt and struggle, which tends to produce a tougher, stronger person. I make use of leather as a second skin and fabric manipulations become the inner skeleton and structures that lie beneath the surface. Hand painting is expressive and freeing. For me, this process is how I cope. I wanted to convey what the body really is. There is beauty in the contrast of restriction and emancipation which are echoed throughout.
