artist statement

 

I create works, similar to dream narratives, where disparate and ridiculous things juxtapose. New work centers around objects, found and collected on everyday journeys or while traveling. Found objects - objects that hold a history - in their existence hint at a story. Materials like wood, bone or moss seem to belong to both the present and the past, existing in a time outside of ‘time’. These traces of kinship with our evolutionary ancestors can evoke archetypes of our own evolutionary journey and catch the scent of the ancestral experiences we carry around in deep memory.

At this cultural tipping point, it seems important that we preserve the relics and symbols of the ancestral collective and that we retain access to our own unconscious wisdom.
