The White Columns Curated Artist Registry
is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

STATEMENT OF WORK
My work begins with the idea that I have lost something deeply essential that I must find. In this way, my process assumes the role of a search. The search initiates as a spontaneous response to the surface and materials at hand and a willful sampling of color, symbol and hybrid figuration. Each piece is based on a personal memory and functions like a blueprint for a machine that can process and give form to the memory. The machine’s anthropomorphic attributes--hands, arms, feet--suggest actions: to grab, to eat, to wave, to walk. The visual description of physicality allows for the memory, the work’s initial source, to evolve into something more independent and free.
