The imagery in my work is best described as an amalgamation of
candid recollections and fabricated realities constructed in the guise of toys,
props, architecture, and machines assembled in a moment suspended in time.
My sculptures are composed in ways that imply a narrative to which viewers
become witnesses – a part of a scene. Shifts in scale and perspective challenge
viewers to question their physical relationship to the world around them.
In my recent work, I am exploring the influence architecture has on our
cultural and social interactions. I find that seemingly inert architectural elements,
such as a corbel or moldings, serve as historical markers – visual backdrops to
our passage through time.
