My artwork investigates the systems and structures that shape and impact our planet, our society, and our identities. I explore these issues through sculptures that embody the paradoxes inherent to these systems, exploring the relationships between opposing forms in a way that both preserves and changes them, or sublates them. The synthesis of interrelated yet contradictory forms often yields an imperfect and ruptured union. Some aspects of each progenitor resist unification, building tension and fracturing under the stress. The ruptures in my work, both physical and logical, are meant to entice questions about complicity, convenience, and consequence. It is my hope that these works operate both visually and logically to invite viewers to think more closely about the spaces we inhabit, the systems we abide by, and the ways in which these define our past, present, and future.
