My assemblage sculptures and installations are anthologies involving disparate objects, forms, and imagery that coalesce into unified larger forms, spaces, and experiences. From close up, the cacophony of imagery creates a disarray of unconventional materials that seem unconnected and disjointed, but from farther away the characterization of the sculpture changes into something completely different. I am interested in this multiplicity and the complexity the viewer confronts in their specific relation and position to what is being seen. I focus on the connections between the objects, both physically and metaphysically. It is these connections that draw out my insatiable curiosity to storytelling, narration, and how they relate to the uncanny qualities the objects’ placement creates.
