Artist Statement

Using formal devices and tropes of Modernist, Eastern and metaphysical dialogues with the infinite, this work explores the fragmented nature of contemporary culture and spiritual identity. Constructed primarily from papier-mâché and painted paper, the sculptures are as temporal as the subjects they address. Collectively the work points to confusing, and uncertain but inevitable relationships with the infinite.
