Artist's Statement

The transformative abilities of art-condensation of materials, context, community & intent-are the core of my practice. Perceptions of art can be considered & understood within the milieu of one’s environment & as a paradigm of culture. Specific site projects inform the development of my sculptures as the history of each place provides context for the image, scale & material within public or private domain. My production appears to present aesthetic oxymorons that occupy both sides of formal & conceptual oppositions such as material versus effect. I develop sculptures that circumvent barriers of spatial articulation. I have worked with non-traditional materials employing corrugated cardboard, inflated plastic, nylon & Plexiglas both in the studio & with industrial fabricators. My current work incorporates this dialogue & questions the notion of perception & how the conversation between timelessness & objecthood may be renegotiated.
