Small sculptural objects have been a part of my practice since the early stages of creating work about restraint and release.
The sculptures of Eulogia are a result of a cumulative process working with experimental media in order to convey this idea. The sculptural objects are a metaphor for desire, the body, something kept bound--a visual representation of the idea that something pulsing with desire can be held back (repressed) for only so long. What we value directly relies on our cultural conditioning and the method by which something is presented to us. Industrial and commercial food materials are transformed into small strange forms, somewhat alien--sometimes sensuous, sometimes unnerving--pulsing beneath ethereal gossamer skins.
