liberation from repression
restraint and release.
I am interested not in what art is, but what it does.
I am exploring notions of value and cultural constructs in an attempt to reflect the uncomfortable complexity of the human animal. Fear. I am provoked by cultural conditioning that trains us to value an artificial version of the human state.
I am a Materialsmith.
My unconventional forms are the product of an unconventional process using unconventional materials.
Anticipation during tense moments pushes the limits of materials as humans should push the boundaries of convention.
The transformation of materials mimics the transformation of a psychological state in response to cultural and societal influences. Social constructs press upon us; when we can bear no more we press back or explode.
Process is Philosophy
Marked by the uncontrollable, pushing limits, surrendering to chaos, planting the seed.
Making is Living.
Living is Making.
stop, sit, listen
success and failure
What are your standards, what is your criteria?
Harvest with Intention
It is not what we label them: mistakes, failures, disappointments
It is how we help them live again
