Statement

I am an interdisciplinary artist and student based in Halifax, N.S.
 
Broadly speaking, my academic work centers modern and contemporary art history and cultural studies, especially as this relates to queer, aesthetic, and critical theory. I am currently persuing a BA in Art History at NSCAD University. 
 
My artistic endeavours draw from my background in jewellery and sculpture, and as a result, my work positions itself as a liaison between fine craft and fine art. Most recently, I have worked in metal, porcelain, and assisted readymade, exploring alternative interpretations of common objects through the reimagination of these forms. I have an endless curiosity with the poetics of material. I focus on reimagining the common object through alterations of materiality, “queering” its interpretation and disrupting symbolism. These alterations through ceremonial craft processes invite viewers to quietly contemplate the form as an intimate artifact and metaphor for social history.
