The impetus of my creative practice is a conflation of influences embodying a spectrum of curiosities, experiences, and knowledge. Through a haze of daily routine I am challenged to notice the minuscule and see the ordinary. These observations, synthesized through a making space, perpetuate contemplation of the ubiquitous, ever-changing built environment. The objects and images I create exist in the public realm as points of exchange, yet the exhibited work—often a collection of moments, fragments, or vague constructs—converge as an index of what is not present; they are a residue of the art, with meaning located within the act of making rather than the making relegated as a means to meaning. The outcomes are brief incarnations that seed subsequent renderings, continually fueling practice, while exercising curiosity.
Embracing collaborative acts exceeding the limitations of the individual, I orchestrate and participate in a practice of blurring authorship—lowercase “c” collaborations. Large acts of one are offset by subsequent acts of many, and thus responded to and so on: marking, redacting, rebuffing, recurring, remarking. The fluid process yields outcomes intended to challenge completeness and stasis, reflecting an art of an erratic continuance, from conception to ruin to return.
