Artist's Statement: Growing up in New Mexico, I've always been interested in roadside memorials, the religious icons in people's houses, the fact that many struggling people such as prisoners and troubled kids have religious iconography on their bodies. It's fascinating to me. Much of my recent work is addressing that fascination. Human torsos are carved with the iconography of my musings on the human condition, the role of religion, spirit, land, home and family. I live in a body that is very uncomfortable due to a back injury 12 years ago, and filter pain, while confronting issues of aging, human frailties, physical disability, traumas and loss, through these torso forms. Yet at the same time I continue my passion for the earth and exuberance for the process of creating permanent objects of beauty out of formless mud. My use of color has been informed and inspired by contemporary painting as much as the amazing light and color of the land around me.
