Artist Statement

In my background of theater, performance, and set design, I deconstructed known elements of plays and created altered versions of anticipated events. This conceptual approach continues in my current work as I focus on the familiar, the repetitive, and question its inherent security and authority. It is informed by the contradictions of limitlessness and restriction, freedom and unease, communality and competition, beauty and impending decay. I rely on the viewer to participate in the creation and development of the work, and grapple with the question: “what is this?”
