My work explores vulnerability: situations sitting on edges, beings pushed to the brink of non-being, architecture falling through in search of a more possible place. Sometimes there is humor in urgency, beauty in bleakness, and a compelling attraction to contradiction. I use my work to sort through obstacles and anxieties in my own life and by extension, situations in the world. This process can lead to unexpected transformations. The imagery often pits consciously constructed form against organic form, culture vs. nature, waking life vs. dream life. In these worlds, wonder and fear coexist and are sometimes intertwined. We must be willing to walk toward both.
