artist statement

The work implies a fractured conceptual space through broken lines and the intersections of shapes coalescing amongst spatial illusions and fragmented textures. The work seems to waver on the page or within the confines of the gallery, unsettled, precarious, and in transition. Forms find their way into the work again and again, degraded through processes of translation, technological reprocessing, and cannibalization. The work dissects hierarchical structures and value systems by employing degraded and reworked materials from previous works and by practicing a nomadic installation process built on traversing great distances and creating encampments of structures in foreign spaces.
