A Quarterly Missive of Alternative Concern

Ascension

(2018. Ceramic, hand-spun, naturally dyed and recycled fibers. An exploration of the dissonance between the female psyche and patriarchal culture, this piece was created as a reflection of the persecution of women throughout history and is a tribute to the traumas and triumphs of womanhood.)


From the Diegetic After

(2016. Stoneware clay, glaze. A reflection on fate and mortality, this sculpture examines the debilitating narrative of human experience caught between the past and present.)


Repossession

(2018. Ceramic, sewing pins, metallic thread, natural linen. This sculpture investigates the fight for bodily autonomy as an expression of finding one's personal divinity in healing through trauma.)
