Often referring to popular and mainstream culture, my sculptures seek to create a reality where optimism rules and where rules are undermined. By primarily choosing formal solutions, I delineate the coincidental and emphasize the process of unconscious creation. My thought process, which are highly private, highly subjective and unfiltered in references, are frequently revealed as assemblages.
A large majority of my works incorporates the use of everyday objects in an atmosphere of middle-class mentality, in which recognition plays a vital role. There is also an aleatory process implemented throughout the work, seducing the viewer into a world of continual equilibrium and the interval that articulates the stream of daily life. Moments are depicted that exist to punctuate the drama of human life to clarify our existence and find meaning in the everyday.
Some aspects of my work do not reference recognizable forms. The results are deconstructed to the point that meaning is shifted and various possible interpretations become manifested. By emphasizing aesthetics, I touch upon various overlapping themes and strategies such as, the relationship between popular culture and conformity, provocation and the investigation of the process of expectations. Using daily life as subject matter—while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of class values—I develop forms that do not follow logical criteria. Rather than base my work on logic, I focus of subjective associations and formal parallels, inciting the viewer to make their own new/personal associations.
