I collect and intervene upon domestic, everyday objects and materials using painterly gestures. I practice locating edges, between the valuable and devalued, image and object, appealing and repellent. Negotiating the slippery demarcation between useful and useless I intuitively deconstruct, layer, and recombine. My primary motivation in the studio is play and often anchors in its capacity for humor and absurdity. Poking, prodding at a disassembled hierarchy and making materiality visible. Conceived forms are components able to be rearranged within an installation, stand alone, or repurposed mimicking the enduring lifespan of objects and resistant to objective conclusion.
