My work is an ongoing conversation with the ticky-tacky flotsam of urban Americana. It’s the stuff all around us, nearly invisible for its ubiquity and, I believe, a window into our collective social mind.
My efforts are a push-pull with these objects. Pushing, I assemble found objects into shapes that are not their own, looking for hidden insights by taking things out of context. Pulling: I use the reproduction of everyday objects as an opportunity to explore my own relationship to them.
I believe in the ability of persistence to coax surprising insights from the commonplace and familiar world around us. I aim to create objects that function as psychic mirrors— funhouse mirrors, more often than not.
