Controlling the Uncontrollable

Artist Statement:
A lot of my work involves destruction so I decided to burn the edges of each piece in order to create interesting negative spaces between drawings. A theme in some of my work is the idea of controlling the uncontrollable. Most of the materials I used are natural and the processes are ones that happen and are difficult to control precisely. I feel as though this a commentary on my childhood as well, trying to control things around me even though they were spiraling out of control.
