My work returns what's missing from life - fragile moments within cycles of creation and destruction.  Through performances and installations and the documents that record them, I communicate a delicate dance between presence and absence.  Creating work helps me come to terms with extremely contradictory experiences.  Within the work, rigid contrasts soften and boundaries become blurred.  Fabric, my primary medium, is used to transform surfaces into gurgling landscapes.  My usage of materials within space allows me to create intimate experiences.  Supple, penetrable materials like fabric, allow my work to have a softening affect.  The common thread is not always obvious; mystery and romance hover. Unfolding myself as I work allows meto build environments that blur the relationships between particulars.  A clarification can occur when one releases oneself within the mistiness of the work.
