My approach as an artist is visceral, instinctive, and evocative. Rather than take a highly theoretical stance, I pursue work by engaging with the elemental, directing a process of reification where impulse and material serve as the origin for what I do.
I begin by making observations, both visual and tactile, and let these build into overwhelming mental concerns. During the studio process, these psychological preoccupations take on tangible forms: physical spaces, objects, drawings, and collages. As I assemble works, the initial preoccupations shift and expand into subjects. The constant negotiations and choices that inform the compositions and sculptures disclose meanings once subconsciously held.
It is through my studio process that the abstract qualities of thoughts, anxieties, and reveries become definite, substantial–where they become of substance: genuine, singular things.
