Artist's Statement

I did that second series of "fetishes" this summer while in Taos. If I had to describe why I create these images I probably could not create them because for me, art is a metaphoric language. The fetishes are made from heavy handmade paper, hand sewn, and painted with natural pigments and oils. I took small elements like textures, colours, objects and ideas to attempt a larger statement. Through my work I am interested in affective or intellectual content closer to essence than narration.
