I make sculptures, installations, photographs and collages using sensuous materials rich in expressive qualities and tactile appeal. My work explores the feeling of living in the body. I am deeply interested in sensory perception, especially touch, sensation, empathy and emotion. I often use rawhide, combined with other materials, for its organic qualities and evocation of skin, animal, death and transformation. I collaborate with filmmakers to integrate moving images into the structure and meaning of my work, further animating and transforming both sculpture and image. My work generates a dialogue between sight and touch, outside and inside, body and mind, manmade and natural.
