My work can best be described as a search for the ecstatic. Generally my practice is extremely intuitive, as I often freely shift between different modes of painting and building. I always attempt to approach my work with a sense of playfulness, experimentation, and, above all, curiosity.
Formally, I am interested in the interaction that occurs when the tropes of modern abstraction are combined with contemporary craft techniques, and common construction and building methods.
I have become extremely interested in skewing and subverting traditional exhibition techniques, and by extension, the expectations that they hold. By using completed singular works as raw materials for larger conglomerates, I now think of each finished work simply as a module for another form. I have been treating my body of work as a cast of characters that have the potential to interact with one another in countless ways.
