Artist's statement

I'm a conceptually representational painter and installation artist, working within a narrative that questions perceptions of art and the conditions of painting.

Incorporating a combination of found objects, manipulated semiotics, and painterly language to question the things we're looking at and the ways we're looking at them, I create installations designed to inspire questions, movement and interactions. My work challenges perceptions through a filter of aesthetic values and the interruption of conventional assumptions.

Nominating combinations of object and process as work itself, my practice represents the process of making and re-presents that process to the viewer, beginning new conversations between materials, viewer and space. It also explores definition and reality through the resignification of aesthetic perception.
