Ephemeral, Eternal & the Space Between

My creative practice draws from my multicultural upbringing, memory, and religious practices to make tangible liminal spaces. These spaces function as shelters where I can experience a temporary sense of belonging as I wait for a permanent, eternal home after death. Inspired by the bowerbird’s methods of shelter-making, the Feast of Tabernacles, and the work of artists such as Do Ho Suh and Andy Goldsworthy, my practice includes a range of media including printmaking, bookbinding, painting, ceramics, and sculpture. The intention of my work is to provide a sense of shelter and safety both for myself and for viewers who feel an innate desire for belonging in an ephemeral world.
