Artist Statement

In the Lost Project, I continue to create large-scale installations and intimate artworks related by their preoccupation with spirituality and with death. Things fall apart; we lose buttons, keys, money, and relationships; resources disappear; we misplace papers and information; pictures and memories fade. Sometimes we find things too–but days, months, or years later, so that we have still lost time during the looking and waiting. I spend hours searching for a particular letter, or there are pieces of jewelry or other treasures in the bottom of a drawer or the back of my closet that I have misplaced or forgotten. Eventually, in death we lose our bodies. Life is cyclical, and mortality is unavoidable. In this way too, a powerful connection is created between aesthetic practice and the cycle of life. These pieces are all created from actual family heirlooms, cast in bronze and brass. Our eyes scan the patterns of these objects and our minds reconstruct and transform what is lost or hidden. While there are narrative passages from my own family related to some of the objects, the entire Lost Project invites the audience to relate to shared themes and stories.
