This oeuvre is an exercise in self-portraiture manifesting as a series of sculptures cast and molded from the human form. Although highly personal and introspective, the work itself asks the viewer to imagine themselves in the context of the sculptures creating an integrated experience. The photographs explore complex issues of identity from multiple perspectives examining the contrast between exterior and interior in both the concept of social structures and the emotional and psychological boundaries of identity.
