STATEMENT

 

My work examines the passage of time, the elusive nature of memory, and the tendency of borders to change boundaries. It's simple and austere; I look for tremendous beauty in minimal representations. An up-close witness of the WTC attack and collapse, the event transformed my work with its severity and brutality. Living with these images created an aesthetic creep towards more reductive work, with renderings that maintain the messy reality of living and remembering. Working flexibly between installation, painting and video, each medium influences the other. Installation informs painting--painting informs video--video informs installation--reflecting the interconnectedness of experience and the sensuality of living.
