Found objects continue to direct my self-taught process of bricolage that began in New York City in 2008.
The weathered, warped, and fragmented quality of each urban artifact is reborn into lyrical constructs for interplay amidst geometric, tonal, and textural relations. Earlier works flaunt more whimsical humor and narrative features while recent explorations focus on juxtaposing the subtler beauty and zen attributes that the materials possess. Each work evolves with a rhythm of its own.
Some pieces take years of meditation and patience, while others are orchestrated and complete within moments.
