Originating in just how far I could take "fortified" paint to the point of sculpture, I now incorporate objects that imply language directly into the surface so that the paintings are a hybrid of terrain and text.
Using multiple media from the net to site installation, my work is conceptual and project based.
Iâ€™m interested in staging and visualizing the tension created when control and its release try to
coexist as a curated chaos.
I shoot overlapping multiple exposure photography, panoramic in shape, with a plastic camera (Holga). These unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own.
I use kids toys and common household objects to make paintings. My first major solo show in NY was called “Remote Control” at Roebling Hall Gallery in 2009. The paintings were made with remote control cars.
My recent body of work uses cut paper layered with soot and encaustic to trace the gradual
reconstruction of a city after a natural disaster. These salvaged materials are reassembled into
forms that are both timeless and transient.
Site-specific installations in ephemeral materials. Videos mapping the un-mappable.
A fascination with our irrepressible compulsion to connect
and communicate despite the inevitable breakdown of those communications being clearly
I'm currently working with found images primarily from sixties and seventies pictorial magazines that I interrupt with over-printed digital drawings and words which introduces a layer of commentary, free association or disruption.
