Artist's Statement

My work is an accumulation of historical references, personal memories, collective thinking, ancient wells and futuristic projections mixed with a sensual awareness. I ponder the tactile and the ephemeral. I toil with the artificial and the natural. I play with invisible slivers and the massive weights. I translate pauses of silence and echos of the fluid roar. My materials are often dried and broken twigs, discarded clothing, working pieces of technology and various configurations of metal. Sometimes I am like the voyeaur noticing and capturing a glimpse of the forces that besiege us, other times I am the thinker, the researcher, the sorter, the laborer, the doer, the artisan and the director. My objective is to capture and portray a contemporary moment in time.
