Founder/ Director - Art Lab Everett
My work is rooted in notions of repair. I am a community based artist and I simultaneously maintain an object based practice. In my sculptures, books and drawings, I wrap and bind discarded remnants transforming them into skin and bandage. Tape, a material fundamental to my work, becomes a metaphor for repair. Figural sculptures, built from the detritus of domestic life; prescription pill bottles, lamps, abandoned strollers, and other materials take on humorous and sometimes mournful poses. Drawn lines, interwoven fibers, as well as spaces for creative work, become strategies for restoration of self as well as metaphors for society’s disposable culture.
