What level of tension is sustainable within a given system? This question
informs my processes in both life and art. In particular, the dynamic
nature of a system that is balanced, however precariously, at its maximum
possible tension level captivates me.
My work explores the relationship between glass and metal.
Metal represents a rigid form, one that must be worked around or conformed
to. Glass, on the other hand, is fragile, transparent, reflective and
sharp; a strong material with a weak reputation.
There is the interaction of the fragile and volatile nature
of the forms, the tension and harmony that these materials can sustain,
and the qualities of translucency and solidity that serve as metaphor
and exploration of layers of meaning and relationship.
