The works within "Aggregation/Extrustion" investigates the body’s inevitable decay. I embrace the subversive, exploring the juxtaposition of the sensual and the grotesque. Through a material exploration of abstract wood forms, I attempt to resolve the friction of embodied entropy, of living in a body that experiences disconnection and discomfort.
