She Is (small)
Shaped by constraints of time and space, I am interested in the cumulative nature of small-scale makings. Moving between drawing and writing, I take objects we encounter in the course of our ordinary lives and immortalize those interactions into lasting images and landscapes of possibility. Defined by the physical space within which it is created, namely my dining room table, I work to remind us that the art of creation can be found in fragments of stolen time. Like an artist whose life is as much a work of art as his/her art itself, my work is inextricably tied to my life as an immigrant, a practicing architect, a woman and a mother.
The “She Is” series draws from my fascination with the fragility of nature intertwined with a love for man made tools. Taken as a body of work, the series comments on the multifaceted nature of women and the surety that we are as complex and varied as the intricate nature of the drawings themselves.
