The Black Series 2012
The Black Series came out a of an interest in exploring narrative and symbolic work. Pairing such iconic figures with ordinary objects allows for the creation of pieces whose meanings are juxtaposed between the literal and the symbolic. Using revered imagery in such a disquieting way forces both the viewer and maker to examine the significance and power of these iconic images.
Childhood Necklaces 2012
This series of necklaces is an exploration of my own childhood and family narrative. Using photos from my childhood as guides, I selected different objects or actions that I remembered clearly. By abstracting some, and making literal translations of others I played with the significance of different memories, as well as suggest our how perspectives alter as we grow.
