Artist Statement

I make works about what it’s like to be inside a body. This includes cultural extensions of the body—modes of telecommunication, cosmetic surgery, recreational prostheses such as Gore-Tex and headlamps—and the major sensory organs—the genitals, ears, skin, eyes, and brain.

My works proceed from “what if” kinds of questions; what if a pregnant couple shared the same body? How can I paint a body listening to listening? My small drawings and paintings are singular in focus and serve as a kind of genetic archive for larger works in painting and sculpture.
