ARTIST STATEMENT: My work examines the relationship between architecture and the body, whether constructed or felt. It explores the ways we build and occupy space through memory, perspective, relationship and psycho-dynamics. When drawing, figure, surface, lines, geometry and color interrupt and support one another. Within three-dimensional space, objects and architectural surrounds are constructed to promote a physical and evocative connection with the body of the viewer.
The work is not about representing a location but instead about presenting what is found there. Intersecting lines, partial views and planes of dislocated material produce windows into an experienced place.These concepts are further explored through video, installation and performance in Movement + Stillness, my ongoing research with Dillon Paul.
