Artist Statement
I work in drawing, sculpture, installation, video/performances, and sound. Usually the daily studio practice is drawing and sculpture, but sometimes my cross-disciplinary process starts not in the studio but in response to a specific site and its history.
My sculptural process and its evolution into a site specific installation, like the nature of reality itself, is not static but dynamic. My work in fact are often in perpetual state of construction and destruction where forms of metamorphosis and variations occur, using different materials elements such as adhesive tape, clay, steam, foam and wood.
