My work shifts between the tangible, political and personal realms. A seemingly small event can alter one's being, our society, and our physical environment in a very substantial way. I examine these everyday small alterations poetically through my work. My experiences of living between cultures, and assimilating, lead me to this investigation. The old lives with the new, and a new existence is made. We are all continually adjusting to our ever-changing environment.
In my work I explore the experience of adjusting, adapting and remaking. I use darning and inlay to bring different surfaces together, or to fill a hole or gap. The fabric/paper is made whole again, and a unified surface is created. The pieces are dependent upon each other. If taken apart a hole remains, and the parts are the parts that fit together to make the piece whole again.
