Artist Statement

 

A Haiku

a distillation
the work I hope to create
quiet transcendence


Statement:

Making art is an act of hope.
Everyday, I try to be a conscious observer of my world, and approach this task with curiosity and wonder. Through a process of distillation, ideas or materials intrinsically take on new meaning, so that the things I make appear to be both foreign and familiar. A shift in aesthetic value, offers a shift in perspective, a slightly askew view that relates to our everyday.
