This work captures past experiences and project them into the present. As much as objects of art hold memories of a time and place such works reveal unspoken habits and untold patterns. They reflect the push and pull of memory and youthful experiences that ranged from the mundane to the desperate. Embedded in the works are matters that we often keep hidden, secret and safe. Like the artist many women have patterns from a past life that haunt their present. And memories that reemerge and reassemble to influence the present moment. The object chosen in this work juxtapose the starkness of the subject matter against the soft foldd of the fabric or the high key color palette.
I am a Philadelphia based printmaker and sculptor. My sculptural and textile work captures memory of past experiences and projects them into the present. The objects chosen hold memories of a specific time and place these assemblages reveal unspoken habits and untold patterns. Embedded in the works are matters that we often keep hidden, safe and secret. Many women have patterns from a past life that haunts the present. The objects chosen in this work juxtapose the discomfort of the subject matter against the soft folds of the fabric. I studied art at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art. She attended Vermont Studio Centers this September 2018. My work has been in the Woodmere Art Museum, PAFA Art Museum, 1969 Gallery, New York and featured in group shows in New York, Chicago and Philadelphia.
