Excerpt from Artist’s Gallery Talk:
. . . . At a young age, I was exposed to the notion of death in a traumatic way, so questions about the meaning of life and death have always been prominent for me. I am asking some of these questions in this series, “Transitions,” by exploring impermanence (anicca, in Pali) and creating work that resides in that liminal space between the rational and the irrational, the object and its shadow, spirit and flesh, suffering and redemption.
The title,“Transitions,” also refers to a transitional stage in my work, in which I began to include more sculptural elements and to make my own multi-layered surfaces rather than relying on the weather- and time-worn surfaces of found objects.
