Yield and Fracture , 5' x 22' x 13', Mixed Media 2005.

By altering the outward appearance of the gallery walls, I address the hidden inner tem­peraments and characteristics of these seem­ingly benign facades. Architectural rubble impacts with the gallery space in imagined collisions, exposing and distorting hidden inner workings and structures. Using everyday building materials such as two-by-fours and drywall, I anthropomorphize the surface of the space. Rather than architecture receding into the background in the service of art, the gallery walls break free and become the art.
