Artist Statement

In my work I explore a number of concerns: Issues associated with territorializing, the built environment and architecture; fringe communities, niche cultures and marginal systems; utopian strategies and speculative futures. I’m interested in how these topics can intersect and become expressed through the images, artifacts and detritus we associate with them. I’m also intrigued with the idea of how unrelated groups with radically different ideologies and agendas imprint their values onto the objects and environments that make up their daily lives, examining how their different strategies and cosmologies often and oddly converge. Within my own practice I try to create work that embodies a number of these possibilities simultaneously and produce drawings that suggest multiple readings of a single image; friend or foe; decay or renewal, future or past.
