Artist Statement

In a process bordering on the devotional, I participate in laborious collecting and making. Gathering from high-end homewares and thrift-store finds, I begin my experiments in the studio, pushing my objects to the limits of the minimal, the maximal, the technical, and the symbolical. In order to arrive at a new way of engaging with my materials, I combine methods from high art with everyday practices. Pulling from all aspects of life, I braid, tear, stuff, knot, paint, airbrush, and decorate. Remnants of material culture are pastiched into color-coordinated, aestheticized objects that bring disparate ideas together in unified forms.
