In my art practice, my image and object-making has evolved in line with my proclivities – privileging “found” over “sought”, enigmatic over declarative, less over more. A process of bricolage and an attitude of make|do, coupled with what chance reveals about unexpected relationships, informs my work. The objects in my installations are found, recycled, and re-purposed materials harvested from my surroundings.
My photographic images – radically de-focused, indeterminate, liminal – encourage a kind of free-flowing inquiry that stimulates new ways of seeing and looking, critical thinking, and play. The imagery is never fully fixed within the confines of the individual piece – there is an “open border” with the surrounding environment, inviting relational and contextual dialogue.
The grid often declares itself as a formal structure in my work and demands fulfillment as such. The discovery – the value uncovered – is the capacity of disparate objects and images to thrive in proximity to one another, to resonate in unexpected ways, to expand in gravity and meaning in these newfound relationships.
