Bio: I think art should be livable. It may sound pedestrian, but if it’s not going to look good above a couch, I don’t want to make it. That being said, I don’t think it should just be a pretty picture. I hope my work makes people think about the juxtaposition between the natural and unnatural worlds.
I work with cold industrial materials to suggest the more severe parts of post-modern living and choose imagery that is from the natural world and change it to feel unnatural. I hope to create a tension that mirrors the underlying discomfort we feel living in a shrinking natural environment. Finally, I work with light because of its power to create mood, amplify imagery and make art more functional.
