“Destroying Form and Image” is a collection of sculptures, paintings, and photography that responds to constructed form and image. Born out of the criticism of literal representation, this collection seeks to find a voice within the distortion and contortion of form and image. “I wanted to destroy something beautiful.”
This series began as an exploration of akio clay creating simple forms. However, the more I worked with the material, the more I distorted the form. Eventually it became a balancing act, creating a sculpture that is both standing up and falling apart. Constructing these forms, I came to imagine the negative spaces as inhabitable – a model of permeable walls.
