Artist Statement:

re·sil·ience

rəˈzilyəns

Resilience is defined by the capacity to recover quickly from difficulties or the ability of an object or substance to spring back into shape.  Resilience is a three part step. It is the beginning of change, the endurance of changing perspectives, and the new founded shapes at the end of these tolerances. It’s not easy. Change never is.  Neither is resilience. It is the echo of survival.

Resilience teaches us the fundamentals of who we are, where we came from, and where we are headed. It can be the inner guidance that helps us navigate new neuron pathways or be the voice that keeps us locked away in our head. It is a best friend to some and a worst enemy to others. Whether it is appreciated or not is up to the individual. They have the luxury of deciding to take it for granted. One thing will always remain clear; it is brutally and perfectly honest.
