Investigating life’s illusory nature and questioning all things seemingly stable, I construct new realities; environments, experiences and objects which are at once ephemeral and eternal.
I’m working with a variety of materials both natural and manufactured; branches, roots, foam, acrylic, Mulberry bark, Latex, Tyvek, rawhide, textiles, fur, metal and Vinyl in order to de-contextualize and create new objects until they no longer make “good practical sense”. The notion of a solid fixed reality falls apart as a deeper truth is revealed – that of infinite potential.
These objects and their dichotomous relationships draw on nature for their form and serve as a metaphor for our ever-evolving sense of being.
“Everything worth knowing is cloaked in paradox because everything substantial defies being revealed in its totality” – Mark Nepo
