Artist Statement
My practice is developed within an interdisciplinary framework that explores the personal and cultural economy of knowledge through familiar artifacts. Whether project based or singular, my work is inspired by philosophical conflicts presented in our everyday encounters with images, objects, and information. I investigate how these artifacts are consumed, processed, re-presented, and reiterated. My large-scale drawings, installations, clay work, sculpture, and printed matter call in to question information’s conceptual and hierarchical value, challenge the boundaries of authoritative reasoning, as well as make evident my own implications within a larger socio-political drama.
