ARTIST STATEMENT

This body of work is a reflection of the urban landscape I live in. The constant destruction and reconstruction of the physical world has made seeing safety fences, cinder blocks, and rebar grids common place but always from the seat of a car. I rescale and change the perspective of these objects to reframe their context, turning a 1 ton construction wall into a brooch, an orange safety fence into a wall sculpture, a 40 foot rebar and concrete trestle into fine jewelry. Silver, copper, concrete and steel are implemented to create these intimate and detailed structures.
