My work, inspired by existential psychology, is an exploration of a paradoxical view of “comfort zones”– that just because a mental state of mind or a physical place is familiar, it may not be the most comfortable after all. It isn’t until we break away from the familiar that we realize how much self-imprisonment we created through limiting ourselves to this perceived “comfort zone,” just as a bird is comfortable living in its nest until it realizes it can fly. My forms demonstrate this struggle between staying bound to something or breaking free.
