As a mixed media artist, I create installations, sculpture and digital art centered on the idea of impermanence and how it relates to our contemporary human condition. I utilize geometric and abstracted forms of Light, shape, space, movement, and sound to challenge people’s perspective. Incorporating interactive elements into my art allows me to create a specific encounter with the viewer. This encounter is meant to engage and activate a visceral and physical awareness that looks into different facets of the human psyche. I strive to develop an internal and external dialogue of collective identity and awareness by intersecting our spaces of existence within the unknown. The unknown are spaces and voids that we get glimpses of which are not defined. These are the spaces of intrigue and infinite possibility.
Light and shadow play a significant role in my work. It is the measuring tool I use to understand the present moment. In the wavelengths of light and darkness we become aware of the delicate fragility of life. Video and film are also able to encapsulate both these aspects of light and darkness through the process of developing and also through the course of capturing moments in motion. I use these mediums along with glass to create different perspectives and vantage points in a space, sculpture, video, or image.
Glass is also a prominent medium in my art process. It is a state of matter that has the ability to change and evolve the same way as we do. Glass is an extension of myself, a memory and breath retained by how I shape it with my body. It can be soft, hard, gooey, brittle, fragile, strong, rough, ugly and beautiful all at once, and in a moment it can all break and turn into dust. Like humans, glass exists in an impermeant reality that is always in flux, it continues to deepen and transform the space it inhabits. My goal as an artist is to construct a foundation for understanding the complexity of these spaces and to give meaning to our continual evolution and progression as humans by unifying different aspects of our transient state of existence.
