Primarily a filmmaker but during the process of developing a film I make performance sculptures,
photographies, drawings, archival process that shall be included in the final film or shall at least
help construct the narration.
My artistic research is best described as a social inquiry into class-consciousness. My work links two
disparate worlds; the mining industries of Wyoming and the sophistication of the 19th century
In bold gestural forms I investigate the body language of animals. In steel (and wax;) motion
conveys emotion. I scavenge scrap yards for industrial refuse ravaged by demolition. Bent, twisted,
steel contains energy and potential new life.
The project pairs diverse abstract imagery, using a diptych format as paintings, photographs and
sculptural installations. The differing nature of the two images functions as subject matter,
similar to sound variations in music.
My work seeks to show a painting's object-hood by exploring the relationship between frame,
fabric support, wet media, and the wall, all while working with the traditional concept
of what a painting is.
