Artist Statement
I’d like to think there is the option to go further than to juxtapose one construction with another, that installation can become more fluid and encompassing, and while I’m not sure exactly how this happens, I’m hoping that my own practice of creating wall installations will somehow expand and shift into some other territory, to move away from duality and hopefully move away from the constrained projections of the subject-object dichotomy, towards creating environments that support a sort of Beingness, which is perhaps just simply a wonderful feeling.
