We live in an era of change. While we are expansively connected through the virtual, we become more isolated from the physical present. Our memory and minds are evolving to the rapid and fragmented ways of now. We are witnesses to, and constructors of narratives recorded through imagery of contentment and allure. Yet we fade further away from our sense of meaning and purpose.

My current sculptures are grounded in the notion of the monument. Amidst the plinth, the human form exists in an isolated and muted state of realism. Motionless postures whisper to ideals from an ancient past. What is human is displayed as a remnant. What is lost is unknown. This work embodies a raw recognition of the fundamental challenges inherent in human experience.
