Working with materials as diverse as residential carpeting, muslin, coffeemakers, pine needles, photography and, recently, fiberglass and aluminum, my work often contends with class and ideas of home, place, and the body’s experience within structures. My work is also informed by process, and I frequently leave traces of my actions visible.
My artistic practice has become increasingly responsive and conversant with site. Often, my process involves inhabiting a space for a span of time in order to connect. I pay special attention to the psychology of the space, the economics surrounding it, and how the space shapes and informs my notion of self.
My interest in the shape of spaces and in the layout as a visual language for expression developed in childhood from looking at my father’s architectural drawings of houses he wanted to build.
