Artist Statement
 

Los Angeles, a fairly reckless experiment in rearranging the natural world, borrows from a broad inventory of cultural models, adopted with a heavy dose of fantasy and inaccuracy. My sculptural installations draw on this freewheeling approach to building a place; I think of them as precarious planets made from scrap material—plaster,  junk mail and cast off atlases, which I cut apart and put back all wrong. The drawings combine the empirical language of mapping with landscape elements. They are free-wheeling geographical “models” that do more to obfuscate the physical world than to illuminate it.
