My life is harnessed to the vagueness of the individual. Having grown up walking, working, and playing with feet as well as hooves, I question the singularity of the self. My work employs modest materials, essential forms, and meditative processes to flesh out that ambiguity and to explore the extent of its universality. Remnants such as worn leather, musty twine, and mangled steel combine into distilled figures and vulnerable constructions. Interactions, reiterations, and collaborations serve to disarm perceived barriers. They suggest both a history and future of intimacy, asking: Where do I end? Where do you begin?
