Buried at Sea (performance still)

“My work is about the human connections and disconnections among
life, earth, universe, and soul. The works consider ideas of protection,
vulnerability, and defeat. We protect one another by loving and
nurturing but we also carry elements of destruction within us that isolate
and harm our land and ourselves. Acknowledging human weakness is
part of existence. As humans, we make mistakes and are affected by our
society. Our connections to one another and to this earthly life are
difficult to maintain in a fast paced technology ridden society. Less often
do we have genuine face-to-face contact due to texting, email, and
social networking. It is possible to reconnect. Using various mediums,
the art pieces I make are a still space where we may embrace and
understand who we are, as we are, in this moment, with all our positive
and negative traits.”
