Artist Statement

My job is to transfigure what exists. I manipulate identifiable objects alongside crafted elements through a process of hunting and gathering, disassembling and replicating, reengineering and distilling. Through a historical lens, I focus on moments where the past and present compare and contrast one another. Using the history and essence of industrial ruins, I fabricate emulations of society and its overabundant remnants. By reflecting upon what happens when conceived materiality obstructs, disrupts, and interferes, I create a dialogue about our effect on and in our world. Through examining the art-object as a vehicle, art can act as a conduit to examine the evolution of one’s self and understand our place in space.
