ARTIST STATEMENT


I paint as a means of exploring color and technology and my work is a conversation on how information is perceived in the spaces where the physical and digital worlds meet. My sculpture works are discrete groupings of found and collected objects; this work is concerned with consumption, mass production, and the emotional value we place on inanimate objects. When I was a kid I loved collecting discarded items like small toys, cheap jewelry, and old keys, and something about that has stuck with me ever since.
