In my work sculptural forms, objects, artefacts and documents map the lived, nuanced and paradoxical experience of gendered beings across time. These formal qualities that reference the body also suggest a certain psychological state, as dichotomous elements exist in harmony and conflict. Attempting to invoke an embodied feeling as a form of empathy.
