Statement from the Artist:
My work is a series of physical challenges and object investigation. Employing chance operations with an emphasis on process and materiality, I am interested in the phenomenon of facilitation a work to “occur”. Through experimentation and play, I discover images and networks that seem to be previously established and self-evident. I use torn up remnants of old work as well as found debris in my studio as source material to explores ideas about impermanence. I hope to investigate this moment of discovery, of potential and transition, and question what exists in the virtual and present.
