THE SHAPES SHOULD INVITE YOU TO FEEL THEM, IF YOU GET THE URGE TO DO SO, THEN I'VE SUCCEEDED
Evoke an emotion
How my art is perceived, and what emotions it evokes, is left to the eye of the beholder.
I think I’ve always unconsciously created human forms in one way or another. I believe it’s because I appreciate forms and how they appeal to us.
Exposing the fracture and embrace the imperfection
Inspired by the Japanese process of repairing ceramics traditionally with lacquer and gold, leaving a gold seam where the fracture were. In Japanese it’s called Kintsugi or Kintsukuroi, golden (“kin”) and repair (“tsugi”). My intention is to expose the fracture and embrace the imperfection, turn it into something beautiful and precious. The humans fault and pain becomes exposed, instead of us hiding it we should expose it and show the beauty in being fragile and vulnerable.
