My current sculptural work examines the conflict of the societal structure in capitalist America and the denial of our connection to the natural world. I display the conflict through human anatomical forms by placing them in a new environment. My artwork is intended to represent the aftermath of modern capitalist thought and theories. I illustrate my anxieties and fears of what industrial and capitalist governments do to the world in which we live, through irony and social commentary. I specifically am disturbed by animal cruelty, gender roles, consumerism, the destruction of natural resources, along with the controlling nature that a capitalist government creates. I draw my inspiration from social issues, medical illustrations, the works of Sue Coe, James Ensor, and Hannah Hoch. I feel a spiritual connection to clay and the traditional process of creating artwork with clay. With clay I can represent the forms of my ideas three-dimensionally, which brings my work to the viewers attention in which pushes my work to a new level of social commentary.
