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.
I create sculptural works that hover between comfortable semblance and cold sovereignty, consisting of structures that flirt with resemblance to historical artifact, furniture, architecture, utilitarian fixtures, or mechanisms of display. Their anthropomorphic scale suggests the potential for human intervention, but they remain amalgams whose function lies in a perpetual frustration of identification. They exist as accumulated gestures of labor, wrought with clumsy conviction, that allow them to operate under an expansive understanding of time. These sculptures become sites for projection: as facsimiles of archetypal objects, impostors of icons, or signs that communicate the structure of their presentation. My work strives to objectify the threshold that exists between subject and direct object; to build that which simultaneously belongs to both and neither. I am interested in the void as artifact; in the negative space between Andromeda and the rock; and the unspoken syntax that governs our desire for the world.
