BFA Candidate-May 2015, Cleveland Institute of Art,OH --------------------------------------------------------------- Artist Statement:For most Americans things or objects are expected, overlooked, and assumed. The ease and decadence of our life styles which are dependent on these items are taken for granted. As a maker, it is my responsibility to appreciate the world that surrounds me. Appreciating the specialness of the stuff filling our lives has added infinite layers to my existence. Everything is something, all things are beautiful for their own reasons. We constantly require objects or tools in everything we do. It is my aim to share this mode of existence by drawing attention to quotidian objects. To accentuate the form, elevate the context, or draw power from the material, plays with the perceived value of everyday objects acting as a reminder of the preciousness of the original object.
