Artist Statement

My assemblages question the purity of visual experience. I investigate the dynamics of presentation by celebrating the individual ambiance of each element, highlighting its characteristics through small gestures and careful placement. Using items that reference high- and low-end commercial appeal allows the work to dictate itself, drawing attention to loose connections while raising simplicity to the utmost importance.
