STATEMENT OF WORK

My creative practice is intuitive and process-driven, prompted by the found ephemera of my daily experience. Responding to the inherent energy within discarded and repurposed objects, I allow for the material to act as the guide, moving through the construction of a piece with no set plan or intended outcome. My current work consists of wall-mounted collages made of found cardboard and hardcover books. There are certain rules and limitations within the making of my work that provide a general starting point. For instance there is never any paint or additional color applied to the pieces; the color is strictly that of the cardboard or book cover. Any text, printing, or graphics are cut/torn away from the cardboard and the remaining material is what gets used. The surfaces are not treated in any way to prevent the material from changing or deteriorating as it naturally will. These collages, suggesting odd terrains and shifting perspectives, are the result of a subconscious examination of space
