We all have an innate desire to belong and to love, to form intimate relationships and strong emotional connections, yet our hopes, dreams and desires are not always realized. In Dyed in the Wool, I explore how our formative processes make up who we might become, or more specifically, who we are attempting to become. Through my work, I examine the uncertainty of a future and how quickly one small decision can unintentionally alter an intended plan, and analyze indecision as a present, uneasy circumstance. I use studies of animal behavior, the landscape, and architectural drafting as mechanisms for metaphors of uncertainty and longing, and through my sculpture build narratives situated at the point between possible success and potential failure.
