Statement

Statement:
Tying together elements of daily concerns with those of the outer universe, my conceptually driven practice explores the fluctuations between cosmology and cosmetology. My works are built up from small bits of cultural detritus culled from magazines and digital content related to perception and the leisure industry. Images of skin from beauty periodicals to pictures of cosmic growths become the fabric for my work. My installations integrate elements of photographic and sculptural space, often playing with scale to allow for a shift in perception depending on the distance between the viewer and the work. Through a process of unfolding and rearrangement I open an awareness that can make one see extraordinary things in the unseen.
