Statement

One’s understanding of the natural world is limited by their physicality and capacity for complexity. This fundamental relationship between self and other is at the core of our personal experience. Working in the mediums of printmaking, performance, and sculpture, I conduct investigations that test ideas of limitation, infinity, and endurance, while gaining knowledge of our reality, and relation to it. These investigation employ methods of replication, repetition, and reduction, because they are integral to the process of observation, internalization, and understanding. Action is recorded and surfaces serve as markers of time and effort, indicators of labor. Through sharing, these objects and experiences contribute to conversations on human behavior, development, resiliency and control.
