ARTIST STATEMENT

Earth’s environment is ultimately shaped and materially affected by consumption. My work seeks to address the normalcy of over-consumption and the perception of belongings—highlighting the relationship between nature and consumer practices.

 

For as many of my artworks as I can, I use recycled and reclaimed supplies. I make works that take into account the environmental impact of the materials themselves and I explore these ideas through my own convictions, habits, possessions, and emotional response to nature. These works take a variety of forms including sculptures, environmental works, installations, paintings, photographs, performances, and videos.

 

Through the re-appropriation of discarded materials into art objects that then reference and incorporate the natural world, I explore our relationship to nature, waste, consumption, materiality, and our emotional connection to objects and the natural environment.
