My work is an exploration of the visceral language of objects. I use abstracted sculptural forms and identifiable components layered, and in opposition with one another, to generate dialogue. By reinterpreting utilitarian objects through deconstruction, appropriation, and reduplication I am dissecting concepts of intrinsic value. This exploration can show how we delineate ourselves ideologically through identification with specific objects and their contexts. Weight and density, speed and time, archival and ephemeral, industry and domesticity are some of my building blocks for this visual language.
