My work attempts to emphasize both the relationships that bind us together and the passing of time, which we cannot escape. These two universal themes inform all that we see around us, they
determine the course and substance of our lives; how we handle them can shape and frame our day-to-day interactions and the mark we leave behind when our hourglass has expired.
In both my painting and sculpture, I aim to explore relationships between materials, both divergent and similar. Whether steel and wood or painted images are juxtaposed, this balance of materials speaks to the value of maintaining perspective and poise. When natural forms clash with people-created elements, I hope to help viewers examine the sometimes difficult and sometimes symbiotic dance between this planet and its inhabitants.
Over time, wood weathers, metal oxidizes, and dust gathers on all things. Time passes, inescapably, and changes everything in its path. I hope to both tell the story of an object's journey through time, to present the moment of its creation, and witness time's unavoidable effects as the piece's journey continues. Just as each of us weathers, so too does the work; our appearances change, and time moves on. Yet time itself is impermanent, each moment slipping immediately into the past.
