Artist Statement:


    These works explore some of the rough edges of relationships in which such issues as control, fear, self-determination, and identity collide. Beneath the surface decorum, darker forces are at play. The controlled environment may be a trap; the beast is within. “Water” also concerns the struggle with beastly forces. Conflicting needs and desires, fears and wishes, roles and identities, and the testing of boundaries threaten to unbalance the relationship of mother and child.
