• ARTIST STATEMENT


    My work is in service of understanding the incorporeal aspects of my experience as a living body. I hope to grasp how the intangible and empirical can exist in the same space, giving respect and credence to each other, while still maintaining their autonomy. I seek to understand these two registers of being separately but, also, together. Through my work, I find similarities between ambiguity and mystery to my own ineffable experience as a human.

    Ambiguity presents a slippery, indefinable quality. Inhabiting the in-between, ambiguity is both/and; either/or; it is also neither. The indeterminate often results in more questions than answers. It eludes parameters, like the depths of the ocean or the vastness of the cosmos. While these spaces are sublimely vast, we know more concrete information about them than we do the condition of our own ontology.

    I am interested in the "everything-ness" of simple forms and the endless potential available within this focus. The circle is often the foundation of my formal choices. It represents wholeness and infinity through its form and geometric symbolism. I often contrast durable and impermanent materials in my installations and sculptures; one is everlasting and the other is temporary. Within research into materiality, there is a latent expression of immateriality and its parameters.
