Statement:

I am an installation based artist who explores spatial relationships. My work acknowledges questions of confluent space and plays with the viewer's biased understanding of imagery. Drawing is a device I use to navigate space, and transform the perception of the viewer. In order to do this I have to draw sculpturally, allowing the work to become an intervention that the viewer encounters. A 3D object is stagnant and must be navigated, a confluent object navigates the viewer, and shares the viewer's space. After seeing a series of Dan Flavin installations at the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Tx, my interest in the visceral effect light has on the viewer became my obsession. My understanding of space became my medium. I consider my recent video work to be about unveiling truth. I have been making believable fluorescent light projections that turn off when the viewer steps in front of the projector, making the viewer discern fact and fiction.
