Stele #8 (detail)
By deploying lightweight, synthetic materials in site-responsive installations and constructed drawings, I foreground internal conceptual and formal dualities: substance and immateriality, cohesion and fragmentation, object and image, banality and bling. Through cutting, layering, tearing, stapling, and stretching plastic garbage bags, Mylar, optical plastics, and fabric, I assemble experiences of visual ambiguity. My aim is to choreograph events of perceptual incident. My hope is that this conflation of disparate parts — mark, shadow, geometry, gesture, concord, dissonance — results in a vertiginous whole. My interest in film and fiction informs the work.
