Material Instincts: Ruminations on Motherhood and Craft, is an MFA Thesis Project that focuses on the liminal and subjective experiences of motherhood through a direct engagement with tactile materials and forms. This project includes three distinct works that utilize various installation and display methods, and that intersect both public and domestic space. Encompassing ceramics, textiles and stitchery, my art activates the inherent historical, social and political significance of these materials and processes which, in turn, elucidate the complexities of my identity as artist + mother.
