As an artist, I'm interested in the life of the body. My work in sculpture and installation both records and resists loss to which the body is subject. My exploration of imagery and material is influenced by the proximity in my experience of religious reliquaries and medical specimen
cases, of ecstatic saints and flayed cadavers, of promised eternity and mater-of-fact death.
I conflate sacred, scientific and domestic forms in work that is often based on castings
of the body and of found objects. I use ephemeral substances such as salt and soap, as well as apparently durable materials such as porcelain and iron. My cross-disciplinary projects
include photography, sound, performance, and poetry. Of late, my work focuses thematically
on ordinary and extreme manifestations of maternal life.
