My practice concerns itself with the refrain of overcoming problems.
As a line of investigation this takes many forms: sculpture, installation, drawing and book works among them. It is also a practice that draws freely from popular culture, the potentials of material and space, site specificity, and art historical context. It functions within and between the poetic, conceptual and absurd.
As such my work proposes a series of attempts to right wrongs, to suggest alternatives, and as an acknowledgement of falling flat on your ass-ness and the potential redemption from said state. Also, there is hope, critical optimism and a desire to achieve the positive.
