My work is rooted in the interplay between the personal and cultural economy of knowledge. Working primarily in the media of drawing and sculpture I cite familiar images and information that exemplify procedural modalities. I do so in in the attempt to challenge the boundaries of authoritative reason, questioning information’s conceptual value by rupturing its formal and structural gravitas.
