My work demonstrates the paradox between space and reality. I use landscape to symbolize growth through volatility. Enduring storms, seasons, and deforestation, the landscape that survives is a reminder of past and present action at work. Beauty exists within the desolation.
Using wood, paint, paper, and razor, I create, break apart and reconstruct until the pieces are de facto collages, portraying how forces play with both internal and external realities.
While the media and patterns make up the skin of my constructions, the shapes aid in generating meaning and providing a formal platform, giving the images and symbols clarity and dimension. I arrived at the physicality of form through facing physical limitations and I invest a lot of energy into every piece. The process of endless building and reconfiguring transcends the physical, encompassing the spiritual and symbolic. When I create, I take part in a reclamation.
