"The works in PART DESIRE display a symbology that is both abstract and specific to my experience. These image / objects are at once severe and playful. Their three-dimensionality breaches the frame while creating an awkward vessel. A hollow crust, they are bodily, needy and vulnerable. Both a presence and an absence."
