Artist Statement

My conceptually driven work employs a variety of media including works on paper, sculpture and digital media. My objects and images interrogate the visual manifestations of our cultural ambivalence towards the human body. I often use found objects and appropriated images to explore our socially constructed perceptions of beauty and horror, order and disorder. I am interested in how not only the form of an object can reveal meaning but also the materials and process by which it was made.
