My work references the everyday world while questioning the illusion of reality. In my practice I investigate typologies associated with materials and process. The seductive surfaces, minimal forms, and appropriation of materials create a familiarity which has to be sought out but is not instantly recognizable. Some forms allude to ordinary objects and are often stand-ins, others are in fact found objects that are reduced or added to. I layer and combine these relationships to engage the viewer in conversations that question how we perceive our environment and the objects around us. I am not interested in illustrating a singular idea but rather creating a setting for dialog between the viewer and my work to exist.
