Statement

I work with three-dimensional forms made out of heavily process-oriented mediums; allowing me more control over the materials from start to finish. This style of working helps me understand the distinctive qualities of each medium; and in turn find the differences between them. These materials dictate the speed at which I can work, forcing me to work faster or slower in order to achieve the desired outcome. This relationship created through the manipulation of materials helps influence and inform my work.

I explore the constant push and pull of opposing forces that causes an unstable existence but ultimately gives way to a balanced unified duality. Combining different mediums creates a source of tension and conflict resulting in an unstable existence. By incorporating physical tension, positive and negative space, rigid and fluid lines, as well as organic and architectural forms I am able to explore these points of conflict and challenge the traditional characteristics of each medium to create a unified duality in a sculptural form.
