I explored the ways in which sculpture can be used to evoke human traits of emotion, personality, and vulnerability. My work focuses on both the literal interior and exterior of the work, as well as other conflicting elements which can be created through the language of sculpture. I gained a newfound understanding of how to create works which confront and relate to the viewer, and a deepening of my understanding of the concepts that I addressed. My work addresses issues of size and scale, of strength and fragility, of damage and exaltation. The animal forms I create speak to something deeply human, exposing hidden elements of ourselves, and revealing them to the viewer.
