My current practice has evolved from my experience as a printmaker, as I look for sources of rhythmic energy and cyclic change to animate material on and related to the site. My work seeks to give autonomy to matter and interest in the local alchemy of constant change at any given site drives these material inquires into the nature of things seen and unseen.
From an industrial canal in Brooklyn to a recent project in the Mojave Desert, my work employs the environmental specifics of the site itself as an active participant in the creation of the work. These material-rich interactions with the environment continue to be the root of my practice. Mixed media work on canvas and paper from these process-driven and often durational installations become records and artifacts of vanished actions, while ongoing documentation, such as stop-animation and time-lapse of the unfolding work, often materializes the most ephemeral aspects of the work.
Working from an ontological premise of impermanence, that all things begin and end, my work charts how this truth manifests in both the absence and presence of materiality, prompting questions about how we interact with the material world and our awareness of its impermanence.
In conjunction with site-specific projects, I maintain a studio practice which likewise explores intersections of material, time, and environment. Studio works are created outside on rooftop spaces in urban and semi-urban locations
