Artist's Statement

My work examines the role of simulation and models of perception through notions of materiality. Using varying degrees of pattern and abstraction to offset the perceived object, my work intends to replicate the experience of unfolding a false reality from within the physical world.

Combining a unique method of drawing, painting, collage, digital photography, and sculpture, my work focuses on objects within the urban and natural environment as material for investigation. Today, even industrial materials are simulated and often lose their material advantages or function altogether, widening the gap between the object and its referent. Furthermore, this lack of viability questions the necessity for the duplication at all. The simulation as a result becomes profoundly evident, entertaining, and futile.
