All the worlds a stage, And all the men and women merely players William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, Scene VII, lines 139-140
Reconciliation of the idea and the experience, where the context shifts from expected to abstract, and our perception of identity, self and identity are altered by the forced re-evaluation from changes in material and spatial relationships. This figurative work lives in this space between what is felt and what is defined. By using and abstracting the human form, I am exploring the effects of posture and position, as well as the common perceptions of materials. It is the investigation of what creates our understanding of the physical self and our surroundings.
