2015-16 Emerging Artist
I am an interdisciplinary artist working in media from drawing to video. This allows me to intuitively discover the nature of the work through exploration. The diverse range of mediums and materials is a constant searching for something that will connect and resonate with my experience.
Because of this material diversity, my work focuses on the creation of situations where objects can be imbued with meaning through the performative similarities to religious and faith-based rituals. Whether my work is experienced in person, through documentation or as relics, I explore different connections through quiet contemplative actions.
I aim to create work that allows the viewer to calmly consider the relationships between actions and objects. Often the solemn nature of my work emphasizes the inevitable end of life. Like most religious rituals, the substance of life is held in contrast to death. I believe the richest experience of my work is in the quiet observation.
