Seek, Approach, Merge is about the universal experience of looking for love, or at the very least, a compatible mate. This is not the flashy, frenzied dance of the young, but a quieter search for a mature relationship.
In Seek, the singular bird has a sense of invisibility in its loneliness. Approach expresses the wariness of exposing one's vulnerabilities. Merge describes the comfort of a solid relationship, the knowledge that both are better together than alone.
I prefer working in unglazed porcelain for its subtle range of colors and matte finish. My work favors the classical style of Roman mosaic with its graphic approach of simplified shapes and flat surface. There is a formality of composition in my work, a systematic application of restricted color. Although the tesserae are machine-made, the loose cuts and rhythmic andamento give the work an archaic and handmade feel.
