"In my work I explore the quotidian details and mysteries of life, as reflected in natural and manmade systems with structures inspired by architecture, natural structures and biological systems. The works explore continuity and change within a system. I am fascinated with and often integrate and expand various spatial concepts to create works that explore dissonance, harmony, vulnerability and ephemeral states. I explore notions of emptiness, linear disruptions, ideas of chance and impermanence. My work investigates various spatial phenomena and textures and contrasts the ethereal with the constructed. I am interested in things that are fragile, spontaneous, and feel humble. I create works with a certain tone of lightness, to evoke a sense of contemplation and to slow viewers down in order that they might perceive space, air, and structure in new ways."
