ARTIST STATEMENT: My work focuses on the dependent relationship between the whole and the segment and the fragile balance between order and disorder. In particular I work with patterns--portraying them simply and in their entirety, or through the prism of a larger pattern. In this way I can focus on specific elements of dependency within the pattern that produces a seemingly chaotic effect. For example, a piece that appears to have a stable logic will also expose the chaos that binds it together. Conversely, in other pieces which are more deliberately chaotic, the underlying order that renders it viable is exposed. The functional aspect of the work (e.g. tables, chairs, etc.) serves to emphasize the inevitable dependency of order and disorder in our everyday.
