Resume

Re-contectualized debris and found material form the basis of my work which evokes the tracings of time and worlds of activity, distilled into simple constructs. Pieces are located at the intersection of geometric and organic form and often use different types of mesh, which offer the slightest ways to inscribe space.  They speak of presence and absence, and how our perception of an experience, memory, object or time all shift — based on where we stand — our point of view.
