Artist Statement

 

My practice begins with seeing the world around me through a lens of form-value. I then choose and gather those materials that affect me in their sensuousness, flexibility, and potentiality. By arranging these materials into new scenarios, I maintain an adjacency with the world, speaking to my materials as my materials speak to me.

The works ride a tenuous knife’s edge between literalism and formalism. Within this tension, a sense of wondering emerges, in which disrupted intellectual certainty is replaced by new imaginings, and what seems obvious becomes lively and strange.
