My sculpture brings natural materials into the gallery space, reassesses their forms, and calls for consideration of human impact on the environment. The natural materials are collected by hand at each specific site and all steel sculpture is fabricated by me to investigate themes of claim, women's labor and permanence.
This year I worked with teams of scientists, indigenous tribes, geologists, lawyers, activists, and community members on issues surrounding a mine in Maine/Passamaquoddy land. I was invited by Smithereen Farm in Pembroke, Maine to create large scale artworks using 20,000 rock core samples to support their Maine Clean Water campaign. Close to Canada, five surrounding towns and two reservations depend upon clean water for their economy, health, & environment. The body of artwork was exhibited at The Kreeger Museum, Hamiltonian Gallery, MICA, and Alchemy of Art Gallery in 2022 and will travel for the next two years to sites including Stand4 Gallery (Brooklyn) and University of Southern Maine (Portland).
