Intro
Member of Klimt02.
Update of the jeweler page with the coming exibitions.

Statement

My work pulls from discourses dealing with the imaged body, consumer culture, body aesthetics, and illness.

My current work replicates and transforms illness and trauma through performance, video, objects and photography. Diseases like acne, cancer, herpes, and elephantiasis are presented as jeweled infections, fabric growths, or wearable instruments. They are hybridizations of the grotesque or undesirable aspects of the body and objects we associate with beauty, status, health or wealth.

One of the core subjects of my work is the imaged body in contrast to realities of the physical body. I see the imaged and imagined as conceptually linked. As a model for the physical body, the visualization is deceptive. The imaged body is stylized, static, manipulated, and often an amalgam of bodily ideals and contemporary design aesthetics.

Objects and their relationship to the body play a role in negotiating the disconnect between idealized images of the body and the physical body.

40 Under 40: Craft Futures 
"40 under 40: Craft Futures" will feature the innovative work of 40 artists born since 1972, the year the Renwick Gallery was established as the Smithsonian American Art Museum's branch for craft and decorative arts. "40 under 40" will investigate evolving notions of craft within traditional media such as ceramics and metalwork, as well as in fields as varied as sculpture, industrial design, installation art, fashion design, sustainable manufacturing and mathematics. 

All of the artworks selected for display in the exhibition were created since Sept. 11, 2001. This new work reflects the changed world that exists today, which poses new challenges and considerations for artists. These 40 artists are united by philosophies for living differently in modern society with an emphasis on sustainability, a return to valuing the hand-made and what it means to live in a state of persistent conflict and unease. Nicholas R. Bell, The Fleur and Charles Bresler Curator of American Craft and Decorative Art at the Renwick Gallery, organized the exhibition."
