Artist Statement
My work looks to manifest collective psychic space latent in our social practices, policies, and economies. I am interested in the seamless process of how social constructs are synthesized and transformed into natural order. I excavate the language and aesthetics of historic and contemporary conventions from the world of the implicit to reveal to reveal their incongruities and question the inevitable.
