STATEMENT


Concept and material are linked in my work; I work three-dimensionally in sculpture, installation and interactive projects. The materials I use are coupled to the ideas that I am dealing with in each separate project. I am constantly learning new techniques and processes as the need arises; yet most of the materials that I gravitate toward are simple. Thematically I draw upon my own experiences and react to an inner and outer emotional life that often delves into current political, socio-economic, and/or environmental events. Despite underlying serious themes, the work plays with a lighter, more amusing duality.

Most of my current work is participatory. The process of art making has become more important than the final product, and the object has morphed into the project. This shift challenges the audience to become part of the creative process, adding different points of view and aesthetic choices to the overall work. Engagement makes artwork inclusive and accessible to a wider community, and pushes the boundaries of traditional practice. It also lends itself to social and political commentary, subject areas that my work often investigates.
