Full Artist's statement
My work strives to glean elegance and monumentality out of the ordinary and ephemeral. Through form and idea, I am interested in evoking a sense of the archetypal and the contemplative in art. Out of this dialogue, I search for the poetics of materiality and relationship, and the transformation that arises from wrestling with internal and external worlds. Taking an interdisciplinary and conceptual approach, I seek to provide interactive engagements as a way for viewers to embody the metaphors presented for reflection.
