Artist / Personal Statement
My current work explores structures I find in my life–physical, cultural and social. I am interested in how I shape and use these structures; and how they, in turn, shape and confine me. My work seeks to examine and understand these structures as well as the forces that create and perpetuate them. It is my hope to use ritual, labor, humor and relational art as a means to examine, understand and potentially combat these structures, both for myself and for culture at large.

These structures are not unique to me or to our time and place. I often reference artworks from other times and places to help make this point. I make no claim that I, as an individual, or we, as a society, are unique or special. On the contrary, it is because we are so ordinary that we are interesting.
