Artist Statement:
I am an interdisciplinary fiber artist focusing on hand dyed textiles, soft sculpture, and stitch work. Still Deep is a sculptural exploration of adaptation. This collection of work, spanning the last two years, touches on the anxieties of balancing my home life and studio practice. I challenged myself to create work that is outside of my comfort zone. I experimented with the concept of abstract sculptural landscapes while still maintaining my point of view. It began with "Islands of Me," a series of hand dyed soft sculptures resembling abstract landforms dotted with spiky blue flora, which calmly scud across the sky like indigo clouds. The pairing of traditional “women’s work” with the competing forces in my life irrevocably fuse my memories into each sculpture.
