Statement

For me, our contemporary atmosphere is both funny and sad and appears colored with boredom, waiting and now. I am always attempting to articulate my experience of this situation through works which include installations, sculptural objects and pictures. Drawing on a modernist vernacular, the works reconfigure the utilitarian order of the quotidian to become poetically realigned and evoking meditations on the temporal and spatial dissonances of the built environment.
