Currently my work focuses on the interwoven relationship between the object and the maker, and the estrangement of the maker as a result of the physical, repetitive, contemplative process. I believe the material should not lose its native identity and inherent quality in the process of physical transformation; a material should not be asked to do beyond what it's capable of in its primitive state. The question of estrangement of the maker and his older self is being initiated and investigated through the material process.
