Wayne State University, BFA, MA


My interest is in memory, history and time: how it's recorded, how certain moments are preserved and how memories change, and in that process, become altered and something new. Using past artifacts as reference points, a fabricated archaeology occurs with the sculptural paintings. Using styrofoam and grout as the underlying supports for the paintings, these preservative materials are transformed into abstract, artifact looking objects that allude to found fragments or relics of architectural pieces or natural objects, relating to the transient nature of time and history.
