STATEMENT

I tend to be drawn to objects and sculpture, although I have previously worked with collage, video and sound, I still find physicality compelling. I am interested in appropriation and the redefinition of things/objects. I am very interested in language, poetics and semiotics. I frequently work with ideas that rely on humor and the absurd. I am mostly captivated by internal and external struggle and how it is expressed. I am curious about transformation, tension and pressure and how they effect creativity. I am interested in accident and chance. The work deals directly with sublimation, identity, sexuality and anxiety. Within the work you’ll also find undertones of politics and social hierarchies. My work draws from kitsch, the internet, advertising, mass media and art history. 

I also work with fellow graduates from the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Our work consists of a trans-disciplinary collaborative effort, where we explore transformational aesthetics, familial structures and gender.
