Artist Statement Submitted 2019

Working mostly in wood, I see my efforts in relation to the vernacular traditions of carved religious figures, ships’ figureheads, and the so-called “show figures” found outside shops in the nineteenth century. However, as a contemporary artist, I want to reformulate this tradition as a satirical view of the workings of money and power in the present world. My recent use of audio, motion, and large-scale castings intensify this vision.
