Tethered began as an aggressive act of cutting out and throwing away a series of images.

It was a response to what someone else didn't want; it was my answer to being rejected. What I kept were the plain white paper boarders from the series of prints as I couldn't bring myself to destroy everything. I then forced these scraps into shapes (sculpted, balled-up gestures) and offered them back. The results are aesthetic and can be read as a gift or a bow on a package.
