Why do you make art?
I am fascinated and mesmerized by the wisdom of the human body and my art is a way to express that.
What changes can art make to life?
I don’t think I could endure a world bereft of art. Art making, for me, creates the only trustworthy documentation and archive of lived experience. No matter the state of isolation or detachment we have to live in, we are never truly alone when we behold art, I think that some may refer to that as grace.
How would you characterize the time we live in?
There is something stripped down and bare about this current moment, and at the same time, the proliferation of media and information is both saturation and celebration. A dear friend has referred to our current era as living ‘in between ice ages’. I like that…we are in the thaw and reawakening to things we haven’t previously made time for. It feels ripe, stark, like the perfect moment to create, but it’s also irreverent, motley, cruel, and heartbreaking.
