Artist Statement: I explore autobiographical storytelling utilizing the palimpsest of everyday objects as meditational works to process recurring memories of pain and loss. In my day-to-day, I experience vivid stories that are brought upon by mundane objects that we normally overlook – some, my own stories of loss, and other stories, full of compassion for people I may never know. In using objects with history to assemble larger iconographical objects, I create space for people who are isolated in their experiences so that their lived feelings and memories are actualized and materialized in our shared reality. In my work, recycled materials hold the stories, fingerprints, and breathes of unknown people whom I attempt to commune and meditate with as a form of a vigil prayer.
