Real experience is rapidly being replaced by two-dimensional artifice. This increasingly jeopardizes our relationship with factual narrative. My interest lies in the exploration of the intersection between the object and pictorial illusion. On first encounter, my work reads as fabricated, but on closer investigation it becomes clear that the visual strength of its “objectness” is compromised by mark-making. While familiar in materiality and shape, my work displays attributes that are visually discordant and nonspecific. The works are momentary portraits of systems in flux.
