Abstract

Catharsis is a series of eight works that highlight the spiritual and emotional benefits I receive from repetitive manual action. Pulling loosely from Catholic iconography and practices, my work discusses the personal solutions I’ve found to the adverse effects that organized religion can have on the psyche. Using both ceramic and found object sculptures, I aim to discuss both the internal and external results of this catharsis.
