It is within these sculptures that I can begin to reclaim by honoring the historical past with a more integrated present. The sculptures suggest new ways of embodying the in between, with each component deconstructed, subverted, and then pieced together into something of its own. It is how the individual looks through the lucite lens (a lens that provides clarity, refraction, illumination, and transparency), where the tactile density of ceramics and their conceptualized ceramic counterparts begin to lend themselves to a conversation that reconstructs existing dialogues. Through these sculptural interventions, I hope to reveal how our perspectives are differing but not othering, conveying a narrative that holds space for the uncategorizable.
