artist statement

The most interesting ideas lie at the point of intersection and entanglement and in our relationship with the unfinished, inescapable, uncontainable contradictions of living. The entry point to this work is our architecture, landscape, and spaces as they relate to the realities and fantasies of ourselves. How do we live in these spaces of opposition and revision, and how do they form our identities? How do we define, structure our own systems, and find language to communicate this never­ending evolution?

My work compresses these vying concepts and materials through stacking, blurring, flattening, balancing, sequencing, bonding, bundling, and suspending. I look to portray the tension between aspiration and reality, floating between illusionary and actual space.
