My art is more about intangible connections than tangible things. I am interested in the idea of how works of art capture and even establish links between and among us – not simply as shared points of reference, but as interchanges of energy, as nodes through which our individual and collective experience is channeled.

 

In my work I seek to incorporate visual contamination, evoke impermanence and flux, and tap into the intricate, infinite networks that link us together. My approach is influenced by my training as a social scientist, and in particular by theories of how identity, collective or individual, is shaped by fluid perceptions of memory and the active construction of history in the present.

 

I work in a range of media, including acrylic, gouache and mixed media. My process emphasizes physical deconstruction, dismantling and recomposing in such a way as to make explicit abstract strategies that generally remain implicit.
