My intent as an artist is to make things that act as a perceptual catalyst; that foster explorative modes of interpreting what we perceive. The body of three-dimensional work in my portfolio constitutes the product of diverse and occasionally whimsical techniques of fabrication, with a particular emphasis on casting in aluminum and rubber derivatives. These objects contain materials ranging from organic to industrial to commonplace, and the synthesis of their incongruent elements results in an entity that refuses to be easily rationalized.
My artistic practice requires perpetual exploration of new materials, processes and technologies. This drive to diversify artistic practice is born not from a need to master each method of “making”, but rather to locate each practice as a single node in the complex and interlocking web of “making.” Breadth of practice is crucial to my work -- the simultaneous application of different techniques of production allow these nodes to hybridize and evolve through experimentation.
