Abstract

When it comes to my work, I tend to make an effort to think inward, and chase uncertainty. Through my work, I attempt to find answers to ambiguous questions such as: Why are things the way they are? Why does this thing do this? What do I believe in? Who am I? With these questions in mind while starting an artwork, I can guarantee that my artistic process will cultivate an environment where I can explore, play, and learn about ideas that interest me. My process is very intuitive and rarely do I have an end product that is anything like my initial idea. Having my process be fluid and constantly changing is important to me. I want my work to be the embodiment of a discovery I have made. Formally, I work in many mediums. I like to explore the limits of drawing, sculpture, sound and video. I am very interested in material. I think about the connotations that certain material has to it, while also stripping the connotations away to expose formal qualities like texture, color.
