Artist Statement

We are reaching the end of humanity as we know it. As a soldier, I have witnessed the violence and degradation we inflict on ourselves and the world. My work allows viewers to experience the unseen alternatives that we could create. I combine traditional sculpture, model making, and assemblage to create tableaux that explore potential relationships between biological and mechanical life. I am drawn to found objects, discarded remnants, and archaic inventions because they are the tailings that trace our progress toward destruction and the formation of new forms of life.
