I am interested in studying representational forms, such as a paper bag, that may be manipulated to personify the object. Human characteristics along with emotional gestures are my focus as I aim to capture an echo of a fleeting moment. These sculptures are not specific to any individual, but guides towards an identity that the viewer may relate with. As the form’s permanent folds, twists, and wrinkles are observed through a delicate transparent mass, a non-concluding narrative begins.
