Artist's Statement

...However, it is the errors in communication that I find particularly interesting, and exploring the gap between the physical and the literal is at the crux of my work. Some examples of such miscommunications are when a metaphor or figure of speech is interpreted physically, or when the photographic space of advertisements attempts to become concrete. Between that transitional gap lies the site of comedy and tragedy, function and dysfunction.
