  • Through my creative process, I examine both physical forms and metaphysical concerns. In terms of spatial relationships, my work explores balance, materials, and a sense of presence. Intellectually, I consider the gray area between painting and sculpture, the territory between picture-plane and object, the relationship between viewer and object, the relationship of the object to the exhibition space, and the relationship between floor/wall/viewer. In my most recent body of work, I am using materials from daily life, objects that have cultural associations and narrative points of reference for viewers. My work is a meditation on entropy, blackness, time, loss, decay, renewal, and survival.
