Respite, my M.F.A. Exhibition, consisted of eight pieces that explore themes of time, breath, and voice. In this body of work I convey the passage of time through the residual traces of water and molten ice in the form of rust, and the use of distressed and weathered materials that embody a sense of decay. Featured in the show were an ice installation, a series of respirator sculptures, and sculptures created from reclaimed materials.
I created biomorphic shapes by combining fiber and metal techniques, such as weaving and netting steel and copper around fabricated and cast pieces. My works are process driven in their construction and the slow progression of their making gives me a sense of passing time, which is recorded through the creation of the work itself.
