Artist Statement

My work attempts to understand the nature of physical being in relation to the void—our uncertain capacity for something beyond the verifiable. Questioning the power of the mind and seeking evidence of something greater than oneself are at the core of my process. Through metaphors of time, like falling through space and the mind as a vessel, I address the essence of “what it is to be.”
