Please Fondle Gently

BFA Senior Thesis

I am interested in evocative bodily forms like breasts and testes. I aim to represent these alluring forms in an erotically sophisticated way. Using materials such as wool and alabaster, I achieve enticing textures between the contrastingly soft and hairy, smooth and hard. Reminiscent of a plush blanket or soft skin, these sensuous materials invite the viewer to caress and handle the work. It is my intent to create work that has a sensual yet comforting presence and my audience to be seduced and grossly intrigued.
