My works center around two main concepts. The first is the experimentation of materials and how seemingly unmatched objects can be used to create art. I search for materials that are flexible and can be repurposed or reshaped. I choose branches, LED lights, duct tape, yarn and other common objects to express my experiences and perspective in a way that can be inclusive and can engage the viewer in a meaningful dialogue.
This exploration inevitably leads to an investigation of the use of space, which is the second concept that pervades my work. Each time I create a work, I keep the physical space in mind. I create both paintings and sculptures that include the environments in which they are installed. My art, the walls, the floor, the viewers, and light each create another dimension; each aspect is a participant in the final product.
