Artist Statement Submitted 2016

Over the years my artwork has evolved into an interdisciplinary approach to sculpture, installation and photography. I combine and intertwine these concentrations in order to create dynamic experiences for my viewer. I regularly take walks with my camera, composing my reality and gaining inspiration in the process. I invariably gravitate towards environments where nature is reclaiming industry. My installations portray this complex relationship, affirming the absolute power and everlasting resilience of the natural world. I am also attracted to ordinary, everyday and discarded objects. My sculptures arise from a need to rescue these abandoned items from obscurity and reconstruct their components into new, engaging combinations. I often compose photographs of the new hand-made objects, involving them in manipulated situations that subvert their original context. My work transforms mundane items into artworks with metaphorical meaning where the viewer can reflect on his/her own reality.
