I juxtapose objects for the home with the archival in order to ask the viewer to think about how narratives of the domestic, family, and womanhood are complicated by a history of slavery, stolen labor, and racism in the U.S. I work with all materials, but consider ceramics and textiles to be foundational to my process and thinking. I use found objects to bring a sense of history into my work. I use magazines, newspapers, and photographs - all kinds of ephemera - to document our human vulnerability to the passage of time. By layering, twisting, stitching, cutting and joining, I make sculptures, relics, assemblages, and shrines as visual metaphors of relationships. I focus on those moments of conflict and intimacy that bring us joy and pain, and those circumstances we inadvertently find ourselves in due to our histories. By creating installations and sculptures that ask for audience participation, my work highlights how our ideas of race, gender, class, and sexuality are highly ritualized, and often unexamined. My work is an invitation to remember, examine, and engage in meaningful dialogue.
