Artist Statement Submitted 2018

My work for this series is assembled on site and creates a sculptural response to the time and space provided.The palette of materials used to realize these works consists exclusively of materials related to the to-go coffee cup culture.Central to all of my installations are monumental woven coffee stir stick structures. All of the sticks used in these installations are woven in place entirely with tension and compression, no adhesive is used, creating an uncanny sculptural experience for the viewer.I make my working process transparent by creating my woven tensile installations entirely in situ. Creating work this way is grounded in my belief that the gallery space may be in conflict with the space where art is normally created and conceived. In order to dissolve these boundaries I try whenever possible to create my work in the place where it will be experienced.
