My sculptural works are fueled by the visual, physical, verbal and written. Equations, equivalents, and norms are in distress and readdressed in my art practice.
With my sculptures, I investigate and interrogate systems in our built, affective, textual, canonical and public environments. Through object-making, the works create complexities in order to expose the multiplicities of meaning inherent in the locations of forms. My artworks insert alternative narratives within, around and through the locations minimalism, building, abstraction, language, humor, and textuality.
