I am a Brooklyn, NY based artist and the owner and curator of Hot Wood Arts. Hot Wood Arts is an arts center that was developed to encourage collaboration, inspiration, and friendship in an urban environment. The center host gallery shows, performances, and resident artists’ open studios through out the year.
My individual artwork is mostly based on anxiety and control. I have been exploring the eternal struggle between restraint and disorder: the way we tend to conceal our inner confusion with the outward appearance of refinement and perfection. My work has become focused on revealing this chaos; making the invisible visible again. I work mostly with everyday industrial materials such as aluminum tubing, packing tape, monofilament, L-brackets, and hose clamps. Through gestural installations, I reveal my understanding of the difference between uncertainty and certainty.
