Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

Whether working from observation or invention, I am interested in identity, perception and communication. I pair hard edges with ambiguous passages to represent how the world exceeds the language, symbols, and interpretations we apply to it. While imperfect, this relational construction of meaning is all we have. Making art is my attempt to span the space between myself and others, between past and present, between meaninglessness and something to hold onto.
