As a psychologist I have always been interested in the struggles of people’s past and how these problems affect their ongoing lives. In my art I continue to explore the relationship between personal memory and universal humanity.
I work in a number of media (clay, wood, metal, found objects, tchotchkes) to elucidate and reify these connections. The resulting sculptures and constructions are attempts to express passionate and painful memories/yearnings for the past (Pothos – a longing for love which can be both sentimental and maudlin) and the tragic sense of life unfulfilled in the present.
A dose of the court jester/iconoclast is often part of my work.
