Artist Statement Submitted 2019

I inhabit a space between fully site-specific installation and a traditional understanding of individual pieces in a gallery setting. Each piece in my exhibition is a statement within a larger conversation, which isolates an aspect of the dialogue, examines it, and places it within the context of other works in the space. Coming from a strong background of collage, I bring the same approach of layering images to my work’s presentation. I look for ways to connect works as I repeat themes. As a medium based in creation of the multiple, print becomes a method for creating structure. This framework, indulging a desire for order, creates space for disruptions. Using prints as modular components allows the work to inherit visual information across pieces. Pulling on the iconography of symbols and objects I examine how my process reflects the recalibration inherent in the search for a “new normal” as life shifts.
