The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
My handmade objects and architectures re-imagine everyday economies such as the shop, park, and home, where private and public mingle in a consommé/sludge. I create immersive systems that transform spectators into participants, and examine themes of ownership, agency, and exchange. Made from assorted domestic and industrial components including wood, fabric, foam, and concrete – as well as video and performance – my multi-genre works are informed by and shaped from movement practices, anti-materialism, primal memory, utopian excavations, and radical embodiment.
My work is situated between sculpture and set, visual art and theatre, site and event. It is in this liminal terrain that I look for an edge where subjecthood and objecthood become interchangeable.
My work included on the White Columns' Artist Registry reflects a recent body of work consisting of oversized painting-sculpture portraits, which are informed by victorian lithographed apparel hangers. The hangers are sometimes used as display structures for a line of experimental work-wear I launched in 2016, called OUTFIT.
