Costumes of a Life

Since childhood, I have saved dresses as potent memory objects related to my playing Scarlett at age 10, my first prom dress and others that mark significant celebrations and transitions in my life.

For the past three years, I have been bringing them out of storage to become part of my art. After sculpting them on top of my paintings and drawings, I use photography to create a material record of my idealized self, with designs for installations as a way of letting go of the past and celebrating the future.
