Artist Statement

My practice features a cast of materials pulled from various points in our chaotic universe, brought together by randomness and desire, presented lovingly. The objects transparently lay bare their inception, construction and manipulation – with fingerprints, humble materials and imperfections. The objects refuse refinement. The objects are both the problem and solution mimicking the structure of our own intuition and curiosity. How does the poetry of an image/ object negotiate with our desire for rational meanings? The meaning is a moving target – animated and performative, both confuses and reinforces our subjecthood.
