Embedded In The Flesh Of The World series explores memory embodied; reactivating gestures, marks, punctuations recalling encounters with/in the world. Using my sensuous physicallity to create with natural/manufactured, new/discarded found materials. I choose to leave the marks of my passage, my making just as those marks have been left on/within me through my encounters. I am embedded in these forms.
Using joyful memories of sunny days, the promise and comfort of a sunrise/sunset and the buoyancy of calm waters to keep going and reignite hope, when the barbed reality of life entraps and tries to drown you. Be freed by the vibrancy that promises more, the and of new beginnings, change and a brighter future, you are so close to the next moment.
