Artist Statement

My practice generally incorporates quotidian and discarded materials with painting, drawing and photography. I work intuitively, across a variety of media as needed. Many of my projects incorporate socio-historically laden materials which bear accumulations of labour and/or histories of taste. Over the past 15 years these have included such materials as outdated human breast milk, linoleum from demolished real estate, hand-notated sheet music, Enlightenment-era pornography, abandoned mattresses, left-wing t-shirts, yarn, rope, and art world form letters. Many of my projects reconfigure found objects with evidential historical value in a way which revises expected narratives.
