Manipulated Body
(2012-2013)

Manipulation and transformation of the body is the focus of this work. Soft sculpture allows me to create voluptuous, fleshy forms that remain malleable and tactile. 
I contort, inflate and extend the bodily forms into a new hybrid of being, creating unsettling anthropomorphic forms which could be human or animal, alive or dead.
