Artist Statement

My work examines the muddled juncture between conscious and unconscious, public and private. I delve into these issues by colliding my studio practice with public performances, where art objects become tools for dialogue between my inner life and a larger social sphere.

I am interested in the capacity of visual art to non-verbally communicate complex states of being. Visual conveyances can leave a great deal open to interpretation. I am attracted to plugging this artistic vagueness into non-art-related situations and environments that demand logical clarity.

I often employ hand-made objects or drawn imagery as props for performances. The work I do in my studio enables me to make non-verbal sensibilities tangible, while my performances communicate these non-lingual ideas directly to the public through my enacted personas.
