Artist Statement.      





Opportunity merged love of object with my compulsion for introspection and situational awareness grew into narrative.  Collected elements are arranged into visual analogies, distilling experiences into the stories of their connectedness.  My aesthetic is anchored by a love of entropy and perceived failures, by that moment when great forces strain willful character.  Irrespective of an instant demise or lengthy erosion, the manner in which something endures in the shadow of collapse speaks to its legacy.  Sourcing damaged objects serves not only to infuse my narratives with worn, overlooked qualities but also allows for their restoration into revered source material.
