Offerings is a sculptural body of work which conveys my personal experiences and emotional modes of being. The meditative and cathartic nature of the process of making these works along with their fetish and shrine-like formal qualities are intended to give them a spiritual essence. Offerings embodies an arc of intangible feelings ranging from fear, anxiety, and desperation to understanding, acceptance, and overcoming. These are expressed through the creation of small-scale figurative sculptures in relation to one another and to their architectonic settings.
