Hang On

Reclaimed cardboard

Artist Statement

This work urges us to be hopeful in a time of massive economic uncertainty, environmental distress, food insecurity, death and disease, and widespread injustice against brown and black people.

As part of my artistic practice I create abstract sculptures utilizing reclaimed cardboard, that push the boundaries of sculpture. I’m drawn to this ordinary material because of its multiple layers that include a corrugated layer between smooth and sometimes printed color layers, in addition to the materials association with the poor and disenfranchised. In my process I peel, twist, cut, bend, pull and transform my materials into 3-dimensional forms that hang or stand freely. In the process of deconstructing these objects, I am challenged to create a new reality that holds the promise of something more beautiful
