Thematic concerns that inform my sculptural works are investigations into the dialectic between abstraction and the representational as they relate to the bodily, histories, and psychology. Shirley Gloria, is an installation of a life-sized sculpture of the former 1930s child star, Shirley Temple, and an audio recording taken in the 1960s of a psychoanalyst and his patient, Gloria. In the Round (and smaller scale variations) consist of over one hundred ceramic small figurines of wild animal newborns arranged in an interlocking pile formation that explore notions of fragility and precarity of the bodily. The last set of abstract sculptures are from my Amorphous Shapes series that are investigations into the corporeal and the unconscious.
