Artist's Statement

My concerns in installation artwork have always been very systems based. How systems can be scalable, fragmented, and sustained. I have become increasingly interested in how we perceive and conceive systems. I am interested in how systems can directly deal with context, sub-context, and beyond context. I am very interested in how a system can expand infinitely and/or collapse to a finite point. When working and showing in a studio, gallery, museum context, my first concerns are architectural. I was profoundly moved and influenced by the California Light and Space movement, and the work produced before and after it. I am very much interested in high Conceptual art. Along with these two movements, I have been influenced by a number of different artists and movements, but I do not wish to reiterate their work. I am interested in how systems can transfer energies, phenomena and ideas across space and time, to create a continuum.
