Artist Statement Submitted 2015

In my ongoing series of site-specific gallery installations I explore my sense that the coffee shop and related materials are more organic and nurturing than the “real” natural environment. The palette of materials used to realize these installations consists exclusively of materials related to the to-go coffee cup culture. Materials including, coffee cup sleeves, coffee cup lids, coffee grounds, and straws are stacked arranged and affixed to the gallery space itself creating a visual dialog between coffee and architecture. Central to all of these installations are monumental woven coffee stir stick structures created over the course of week long marathon constructions on site.
