My art is based on the emotional connections that we have with one another. The idea for this work has come out of some especially trying times in my life where I have felt isolated and alone. It is through these experiences that I have come to learn that everyone at some point in their lives will feel these same emotions.
I have chosen sculpture as my medium to portray these connections as sculpture is a very tactile medium that becomes part of the viewers’ physical space. I have chosen to create a series of quick study figures that are based on different emotions through the use of body language. I chose not to create pieces that are highly detailed and finished, so as to not detract from the emotional aspect of the pieces.
