As a contemporary artist, my practice focuses on three dimensional work, photography and fabrication of large scale works. Metal casting as been a dominate part of my process with large works and installations combining fabricated metal elements, found objects, cast materials and large scale photography. Using a narrative approach I incorporate layers of familiarities through a contemporary narrative. Using remembered social and cultural constructs together with bits of history and historic gender dialogues, I create experiences for my viewers. Revealing nostalgia and generational layers and placing them within larger social and cultural constructs allows me to expand ideas to include topics from both a historic and contemporary viewpoint. I frequently incorporate humor and playfulness and I believe art is an investigative tool able to connect the community through place and time. I am most at home using a site specific approach where I adapt concepts and work to a site or space allocated for art. Through this method I am able to fit works to accommodate clients spaces and specific needs with scale and dimensions variable.
