ABOUT ME

Statement:

My work invites you to a non linear experience of pixelation and obsessive compulsive disorder. Through my practice I seek to understand my identity as perceived from within. I draw inspiration from pop culture's objets as they define our culture. Interested in the process of reinserting pop icons back into the world. I choose sewing buttons as a tribute to the strong connection I had with my grandmother. She had a cookie can she used as a sewing box that was filled with buttons. The technique I developed consists of threading thousands of Buttons using clear monofilament suspended from acrylic structures.
