My most recent work utilizes found material. Using throwaways is equal parts preference—I revel in the challenge of repurposing found material—and environmental statement—highlighting contemporary society’s overconsumption.
While my work has always sought to express an opinion, since 2016 that message has taken a more political stance. As an artist whose process seeks the sweet spot between intention and intuition the shift feels unavoidable, perhaps even necessary, during this time of political strife. Affected by the swell of activism these recent small sculptures echo my feelings of despair and optimism seesawing along with the newscycle.
