In the past I worked as a photographer. But now, instead of documenting, I pluck these things out of their environment and make them something else. Using wood, steel and paint, I recreate these forms, stripping away the context, distilling them into studies of shape and color. In doing so they open up to possibility, asking to be reimagined as purposeful entities. Becoming totems, tools of communication and existential icons, these objects can be interpreted as a form of societal language or as future remnants of contemporary life.
