My installations create enigmatic and ephemeral experiences, using the grid as a means of organization. I make no effort to overcome my materials; they remain as they are—lines of string, dustings of salt, or lead weights. But through repetition, the “fabric” becomes more than the sum of its parts. I am not interested in giving a specific narrative; rather, my installations seem very familiar, suggesting metaphorical descriptions without explanations.

Plane # 1, 2004
Painted lead weights, monofilament, and string; 120 x 144 x 144 in.
