ARTIST STATEMENT: My work draws from a middle-dimension between material culture and private experience. In my paintings and sculptures, I revisit moments of reverie spurred by cast-off places and things, hoping to extract the fleeting quality that made me pause. In these moments, a parking lot or desolate nightclub becomes transcendent. Rocks, headstones and dollar store scraps reveal themselves to be tender ciphers, mediating human time and sensation. Bits of these referents are simultaneously revealed and buried by material (plaster, paint,) suggesting specific yet inaccessible narratives within the work. I try to negotiate personally constructed meaning with the autonomy or indifference inherent in these found forms, often arriving at a space of uncanny familiarity in which the viewer must also question his or her sense of “knowing.” Poetry, humor and emotion share the stage in my process as well.
