Artist Statement

Plastered floaties, makeshift constructions and thousands of tiny handmade balls populate my brightly hued and playful installations, paintings and video work. Beyond a veil of colorful distractions - defenses if you will - the subtlety of secrets is suggested by evocative positioning and careful manipulation of found objects and discarded materials. These objects and constructions I create act as metaphors for unease, discomfort and uncertainty, as well as strength and comfort; the dichotomy of fragility and resilience becomes paramount. By way of ever-changing installations, the relationships between objects and materials infer narratives that can unravel into different scenarios. To varying degrees I consistently obscure my subject. My narratives reflect denial, fallible memory and variable human perception.

Bio
