STATEMENT OF WORK

My work explores the relationship between physical and psychological spaces. Using sculptural materials I seek to portray intangible barriers and conceptual spaces I encounter and struggle to verbalize. Investigations into spatial and material reality, and structures of the natural and built world drive my practice. My work explores the relationship between painting and sculpture address the larger questions of my practices regarding spatial and material reality, and value systems. They are my attempt at manifesting the fuzziness of memory; the feeling of a moment without true recall. The works create solid, tangible objects that flesh out words like interstices and verisimilitude where only intangible space was before.

 The material language and processes I have developed in my work stems from my background in traditional molding making and casting. The logic of moldmaking-- liquidity, porousness, rigidity, gravity, negative and positive space-- always factors in when I am composing an artwork. In this way I am able to translate intangible concepts and emotions into physical forms that bring me deeper understanding.
