Table of contents
This website is designed as a book with each art collection being a chapter. It begins with the most recent, so you are exploring a book in reverse – from what is typically the end is now the beginning. And what typically is printed and bound without pages added, is now an ongoing living entity. Chapters are continuously added to the front as I continue to live and create.
You also have the option to see the entire book here (updated December 2022).
Brick Block, Tick Tock
Break the Mold
Turn on the Light, I had a Nightmare
Bodies of Water
The Animals We Love
Based on research that I conducted while visiting Sardinia in August 2020, this body of work comprises photographs and journal entries made during my time there, as well as a series of sculptures derived from the little fish that gave the island its name.
A Matriarchy Modern
Flex. The word describes a bodily gesture—the contraction of muscles or the bending of a joint. Colloquially, it also describes a display of dominance, a usage directly linked to the power of physical might.
W / Hole
Mickey and DaVinci
The Stone has Shattered and I Can Breathe
“And the weight in my stomach feels like a stone—a stone l’ve been trying to chisel at for years now, to remove from my body so I can finally, maybe for the first time since I was a child, take a deep full breath and feel freedom.”
Pinocchio and the Conscious Cricket
I often felt alienated by my family and their different ideas about who I should be and how I should act. Sometimes, I would imagine the story of my birth and childhood as though I really were some otherworldly creature, made of fundamentally different stuff.
Mirroring considers the origins of international trade, charting its history from the Silk Road that connected the West with the Middle East and Asia, to the present day when cardboard boxes deliver products from halfway around the world.
Coronavirus has caused fear and loss. But it has also prompted us to reflect upon the importance of human life, cultural connection, and collective memory. This moment, which mirrors those that have come before, offers an opportunity for a contemporary form of humanism and social rebirth.
As the workers began to see that their struggle was not just with the farmers, but with the government as well, “Bella ciao” expanded in use becoming—between 1943 and 1945—a rallying cry for the anti-fascist resistance.
Words of Endearment
An Americano for the American
I know people who look almost religiously to the tarot deck for wisdom. I have never been that person, but I do see the cards—like any form of projection—as a means of clarifying subconscious feelings.
As I traveled to these other countries I read about their histories, the colonizations that occurred, and saw that being born in Canada – a country colonized by both France and Britain – brought an awareness of first peoples around the world. I believe we should have the social responsibility to show gratitude and respect to the cultures and practices of first peoples that have existed for centuries before us and not let their cultures be erased.
Copper Nail and the Little Bird
Blood Feather of a Northern Flicker
White Powder, White Stone
Drawing on memories of the Venetian stories that my grandparents told me as I grew up, this collection of sculptures collide elements of the narratives as if trying—and failing—to recreate the same arc.
Peering at Faint Lights from the Distance
Peering at Faint Lights in the Distance materializes a series of visions that I had in 2014 under the influence of ayahuasca, visions which collided different parts of my life and revealed linkages that had previously been obscure.
