You Are Me

Ottawa Art Gallery

Created for a solo exhibition at The Ottawa Art Gallery, this installation has toured Québec and exhibited in the Taiwan Ceramic Biennale 2018.

My practice is rooted in how ceramic materials and processes have affinities with the human condition. I am interested in the exchange of energy that is essential to life, be it intrinsic or extrinsic. The energy at the molecular level that attracts or repels particles of clay is invisible to the eye, but the effects are apparent.

How do we respond to and engage with the injury of experience – within, with each other, with the other? By embracing wounds, deeper meaning can be brought to our lives, transforming suffering into something worthy, sensuous and beautiful.
