Surging Seepage was the beginning of a whole new way of working and thinking for me. Before this I was sculpting the human figure and it was when I started to break down the figure, to deconstruct the body, and to think of the body as a system that things really opened up for me. My practice shifted into abstraction and I went into a frenzy of experimental making.
From there, I started relating the systems of the body to other systems of growth in the natural world and I began to think more broadly about biological materials responding, relating, and reacting to one another. I also began working with bright colors and became interested in blurring boundaries between the real and the imagined. The work evolved through a series of installations and installation itself emerged as a way for me to think about growth, movement, and expansion.
