Artist's Statement

In my practice I create objects that appear as artifacts of past inventions, suggesting something imagined yet not realized.  These “inventions” reference my early life in the Soviet Union, where hopes for utopian progress abounded.  However, my archaic flying machines and ironic blueprints envision a world infected with a futile hope for progress.  The absurdity and humor of these objects poke fun at ideological hubris, while affirming art as a space for imagining the impossible.
