ARTIST STATEMENT
Since I was a child I was afraid of spiders. Fascinated by why as an adult we hold onto a fear that makes no sense to the rational brain I wanted to work closely with an arachnid. The goal being to become comfortable with it's form, function, and ultimately develop an appreciation of the power it holds over me.
