dc.description.abstractMy work is about revealing beauty in the hidden, subtle, and inauspicious details found around us. I want to call attention to beauty found in the quiet, temporal familiarities of the physical world where there exists a transition between material and nonexistence. The main vehicle for this disclosure is casting process in which translucent materials are used to lift impressions from surfaces such as the studio floor or sheets of plastic. This process reveals countless natural occurrences, varying form cracks and wrinkles to dirt and chipped paint. The combination of these subtle incidents is the focal point of my work My attention to surface draws the viewer into the interior of each piece, dissolving the outer membrane and revealing layers of hidden irregularities. Each work is a record of used and misuse - a temporal expression of beauty created by the collective effects of time, human treatment, and my own hand.en
