Artist Statement

Equal parts finished sculpture and recorded action, my work aims to understand the universe materially. Physically, the objects explore transition, force, and balance. Poetically, they create metaphoric equilibrium and transcend pure matter. I find beauty in ingenuity, surprise, and precision, and I use physical means to search for deep connections. Paradoxically, I try to create timeless forms tied to contingency, revealing the process of their fabrication and decay.
