My work attempts to isolate universal experiences. I endeavor to create specific relationships and interaction by asking the viewer to participate in the definition and realization of meaning through ambiguity. The work reveals a certain awkwardness, a self-conscious awareness of discomfort, uncertainty, longing, desire, disillusionment and confusion. My objects can be relentless, yet also so very quiet, sometimes even timid. They act as a type of reflecting pool, and, in essence, a filtering system; ideas pass through for contemplation, leading one to consider the circumstances presented within each experience.
