Artist Statement Submitted 2018

My art practice is influenced by the fields of science and physics as my work continuously exposes what is often invisible.

I continuously explore ways of expressing invisible properties visible through my art practice. I expose socially constructed notions of race, class, and gender by combining images of the human body with materials that possess invisible properties. To aid the physical properties of glass in speaking about society, my art uses a variety of media and phenomena for instance sound, reflection, and human perception.

I have been always fascinated by material exploration such as vibrating sound of glass caused through physical alterations, and this led me to experiment the invisible visible.

Currently, I am continuing my study of visibility and perception by exploring the illusion of relationship between self and others. I am fascinated by shaking up the components of this relationship and in the very idea of self-awareness.
