Artist Statement

The idea of combining contemporary sculpture and science with non-traditional materials is at the core of my work as an artist.

My work very often references a sense of experimental playfulness. The rigidity of science, chemistry and physics is broken by a desire to re-contextualize empirical research thru a sculptor’s vantage point. The final selection of unrelated matter becomes a perplexing hybrid of materials and concepts rooted in laboratory praxis and contemporary art theory.

I find myself constantly toying with visual connections between science and art, forcing them into a realm of senselessness and chaos. This work stimulates viewers into constructing their own understanding of contemporary concerns and questions which may be used as an impetus to encourage associations between disparate entities.
