Artist Statement

At its core, my work examines identity and social constructs within society through the language of abstraction. Does the individual form society, or does society form the individual? What constitutes identity and the values of society; and ultimately determines who one is? What is the true representation of ‘self’; is it physical or digital? Is meaning gained or lost through these multiple representations?

My process is heavily influenced by my experience in construction and demolition. I use the grid as a surrogate for humanity and social structures. The grid has a power to harness a multiplicity of identities and existences in various stages of completion. Through these multiple modes of representation, I am not just questioning what makes something complete or incomplete, but what dictates the standard by which it is judged.
