ARTIST STATEMENT: I feel best and most alive when working with my hands, figuring out how to piece things together. Thus as an artist I often use discarded objects and parts in order to see how I can reuse them to make something meaningful. Sometimes itís as simple as using pieces of cardboard as canvas. Other times itís more about the idea, for example figuring out how I can use an excel spreadsheet as a canvas and then linking art and finance. Currently I am exploring the relationship between scrap / trash wood in NYC and its usefelness via sculpture.
