About The Artwork

This work was created through the exploration of texture, pattern, and form. It draws reference from natural and botanical forms, and it is intended to provoke the desire of the viewer to engage with it and touch the surface. The form depicts a contrast between the soft layers of its external "skin" and the fleshiness of its central cavity, which symbolizes a doorway to another unknown place or stage and the apprehension that often coincides with journeying into the unknown. This opening is somewhere in the middle (i.e. the interstice) of where we are, where we want to be, or what comes next. This work is entirely hand constructed by the artist out of recycled felt, latex rubber, and other found materials. Each layered element is hand shaped and stitched to create the surface.

My work seeks to communicate through the use of a collectively shared haptic vocabulary. The visual and tactile phenomena of color, pattern, and texture possess the ability to cross sociological boundaries—which is in direct contrast to the many limitations of verbal communication. By using soft materials and textile techniques, I tap into universal memories via our common experience of touch. Meaning is expressed through the careful consideration of materials and the inventive processes used to manipulate them. Where verbal language fails, touch has a commonality that is sincere. My goal is to have the viewer feel as if they are engaging in an empathetic conversation—without a single word being spoken.
