Artist Statement
My work explores the performative nature of objects and the monumentalization of individuals. I compose installations akin to three-dimensional paintings, considering common methods of display in contemporary sculpture and 18th century still life painting and photography. Representational and graphic elements within these spaces introduce illusion and perceptual shifts in depth.
I stage anachronistic fictions in which facets of historical unconscious are explored using contemporary material forms. Below the surface of these fictions are actual histories of innovation, exploration, and ambition, which I trace with wry humor, comparing their promises of social and scientific utopias against the present.
