Artist's Statement

Through the use of drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, Internet images and carpentry, I render compositions and create ready to use objects and environments that challenge the viewers' notions of space and parameter. These rendered object/places are neither controlling nor comfortable, and simultaneously inclusive and exclusive. Most recently, I have been interested in making interactive sculptures that have an element of amusement, which acts as a conduit for a more meaningful social interaction.
I believe that architecture plays a very significant role in social balance or unrest. I am intrigued by the possibility of rituals and control that architectural space can facilitate, and social tensions that are created or relieved by paternalistic space.
