Artist Statement

While my work depicts horses, I wouldn’t say it’s about horses, per se. Rather, they are a window, a form through which I address the experience of being human. Horses possess formidable power, sometimes more than they realize, just as we do. Their potential and energy can be quiet and focused, or misdirected and destructive, just as ours can. They have the capacity for unparalleled intuition and sensitivity, intelligence and dedication, yet can be blinded by panic and fear of the unknown, just as we are, both as individuals and as a society. My current body of work focuses on how we face transitions. I am placing my figures into the environments/contexts created by found objects, mostly salvaged boxes and metal shapes. For me, the pieces evoke the feeling of moving from one state into another, whether that be time, place, or situation. There is a sense of emerging towards one self and leaving another behind. I am interested in what pushes us towards these moments, and how we decide how and whether to pass through those doors.
