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.
A garden is [physical] and physicalized time. It is a space to be planned, executed and maintained. It is a space to determine suitability to a climate, to propagate research, and to monitor long term [rustling]. It is a shared space for both expert and beginner. It is a space defined by what it places and how [possum babies have nested in the trashcan]. It is an attempt to control chaos [underfoot].
Much like a garden, my studio practice presents objects and experiences [the experiential] to a viewer for the purpose of connection [communication] cultivation.
By focusing on materials and process that engage timekeeping through the pressurization of matter [wood], rhythmic cycles [flowers] or by human ambition [infinity pools], I am a student of agreement and synchronicity.
I find time compelling because of its fully abstracted yet accepted presence in our lives. Timing, cadence, the confluence of language in a certain speed and rhythm have the ability create laughter [but cannot be guaranteed].
As a spatial thinker, my work ranges from 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional approaches to space and time with projects often expected to cast shadows, encourage agency through material misuse, and disregard hierarchies.
