Artist Statement

My work deals with the navigation of space. Sculptures physically represent a constructed space, while prints explore how we interact with the physical world. The two forms dovetail, creating a constant deconstruction and reconstruction of ideas. The sculptures are made of common construction materials: two-by-fours, drywall, and paint. Mathematical sequencing allows me to take the idea of a pure form and augment it into something that combines complexity and Minimalism, the everyday and the abstract.
