The objects I create have evolved from silence, in cultivating stillness and reverence while working. This contemplative practice weaves itself into my studio practice, offering it a kind of subtle weight.
The works define and navigate an intermediate space, and exist as a connecting link to spaces between the outer and the inner worlds, the seen and the unseen. They exist as a relatively permanent record of moments in time in an earthly, tangible form. These objects offer a passage into ambiguous spaces and realities and suggest questions, inviting a visual dialogue along the way.
The dimensional, wall-mounted sculptures I create challenge and amplify the physical flatness of my paintings. Employing a playful game-like position, they pose questions about their own nature- their history and origin, their material composition and weight. There is a play between a weightless quality in some, and dense matter in others, recalling natural processes of earthly growth and decay. They reference forces of nature like gravity or a magnetic field, while others suggest more solid objects such as relics, glaciers, artifacts from ancient civilizations, or rocks taken from the moon. In these seemingly heavier works, the paint itself functions as a kind of geologic strata, describing the slow pace of nature, of evolution.
The two dimensional works I create tend more toward the airy and atmospheric, describing spaces with less gravity, subtle realms of unknown destinations.
