In my work, I use pathos as a means to connect with my audience. I create mixed media objects and images that embody visual characteristics of fragmentation, emotional numbness, and a paradoxical beauty in both tension and fragility. Via their transient nature, they speak about cycles in our individual and collective lives and how we naturally process them. I predominantly collect found artifacts and use raw, utilitarian materials to recontextualize their existence and relate them to the varying states of the body – anatomical and psychological. I am also inspired by the theatrics of landscape and its ability to reveal to us the overlooked gap in our humanity via its forgotten history.
