I am interested in creating work that explores and challenges ideas relating to modern civilization and contemporary culture. I plan on creating both three-dimensional and two-dimensional works in glass and mixed media that use elements of the domestic interior as a reference for our cultural identity. I will continue to develop my visual language through material where traditional decorative techniques in glass and other media can be re-appropriated for metaphoric and conceptual purposes. Through the use of well-developed visual references from the history of decorative media, I will create works that present potentially unsavory subject matter in an attractive and palatable manner. The culmination of my research will be the creation of beautiful and seductive objects, images, and installations that create instances of irony and satire.
