artist statement

in my relationships i absorb the emotions of others. the emotions feel like they have originated within myself, blurring the boundaries between my own experiences and secondhand accounts.

this transfer is manifested in my work. each object has no choice but to accept both the kindness and stress i apply to the material, mimicking the way i receive the feelings of those i am in relationship with. there is a cycle. i receive then give to the objects. the objects receive and now have possession of my hypersensitive response. in experiencing  these relationships others enter into this process alongside me.
