Artist Statement

In my work I dissociate objects from their intended purpose and locations so that I can reconfigure or represent them in a way that can give them poetic meaning and lead to a questioning of the naturalness of their materiality and conditions of existence.

Rather than being bound by any particular methodology towards process and technique, I resist finding easy categories for the creative process and by extension, what the viewer can expect from the finished work. One of the most difficult and exciting aspects of my current process involves negotiating the space between the unexpected and surprising outcomes of a particular process and communicating explicit content and intention. Through this negotiation, I discover meaningful relationships that arise from an activity of unmaking and remaking, intervention and transformation.
