My work uses a process of laborious repetition that transforms industrial material into a visual cornucopia. My systematic approach to working, simultaneously controlled and random, ultimately reinforces the continued existence of chaotic permutations in nature despite the advancement of linear certainty in technology.
My materials within each artwork connect in their history, but their application is obsessive and unnatural. The absurdity in the amount of materials, along with a simple but strange application process, allows the industrial materials to become more organic and take on their own life together as an art object.
The physical dimensions of my artworks define their scale as an object, thought I continue the viewer into questioning a more infinite space. By formal moves such as going close to the edges of a surface, using circular forms, and completely covering a surface, I activate the physical and mental space surrounding the object.
Using a microscopic application process of materials allows them to become abstracted when viewed from a distance. The materials expose themselves as a specific industrial material when the viewer approaches the work. Subjective and objective worlds collide, creating a true vision of contemporary nature as a portion of the sublime in an art object.
