Describe your art practice
I work in a variety of media: sculpture, drawing, printmaking and photography. The imagery usually incorporates the human figure, most often the female figure, and the ideas revolve primarily around social issues presented through narrative or metaphor. The sculptural materials range from handmade paper (used for its ability to mimic a variety of materials as well as its inherent connotation of fragility) to a hardened plaster called Hydrostone, to printed silk panels, to a special form of Fiberglas-reinforced plaster called Hydrocal FGR95 (originally developed for architectural casting). I’ve tended to work in that somewhat peculiar niche between painting and sculpture called “relief.” In the late 1990s I began to treat the floor and the wall as an integral part of the meaning, that is, something more than merely a backdrop. My most recent installations further explore the link between the human body and architecture.
Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Maybe I could work less and make more art
