Artist Statement
These works are about laying things to rest: memories, lives, and History. They also must then speak of what we choose to keep alive and memorialize. My process involves examining and organizing decay, specifically, the mundane and outmoded objects of Middle America. The result is a body of work questioning contemporary notions of progress and cleanliness by presenting images of loss and disillusion / dissolution.

Recently my work has shifted towards looking at objects that mark a passing and/or historical and tourist sites. Memorials attempt to set a person or event into spatial history. This operation often relies on a connection between text and image or form. In exploring these relationships, the forms I represent are all truncated in some way. The writing or image stops short, and the viewer is given space to fill in information, conditioned or not. The information provided becomes abstracted to the point of taking on several meanings.  The uncomfortable balance between what is present and lacking, what is expected and unexpected, familiar versus unfamiliar, results in a certain amount of humor, sadness, and confusion.

Caught somewhere between the insider and outsider, the familiar and the unfamiliar, we find ourselves in the space where we can be critical as well as connected. I want to position us as tourists in America, but as if we have been here a hundred times before. I am interested in our culture’s attempts to fit in every detail and the results of the impossibility of that action. Here lies the difficulty of knowing what to hold on to and what to let go of.
