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.
In a way, I am a story-maker. I invent stories to justify myself, my existence and my desires. I create spaces and situations with the intention to communicate a story. The themes that I explore have been those that we generally do not want to talk about. It has been through narratives of sickness, death, birth, poverty, debt and immigration, among other subjects, that I create my work.
Through my work I employ a variety of visual formats. I create works from disparate elements that reflects the compartmentalization and varied nature of our lives. I select the media and materials used on each piece in accordance to the idea that I am working with.
I create fictive laboratory spaces. I insert the role of a hero, writing a role for myself in the work. Use light as a metaphor for birth. Drawings to create lines of infinity. Candles to create lines of light. Give money away to talk about the third world countries debt. Dust to convert illegals to legal aliens. Sugar cubes to talk about death.
