Artists Statement

My art is made with light, time, and chance. The artworks document passage of time by capturing the sun's UV rays, the fast – changing lives of our era, and a sensation of belonging nowhere yet being equally (un)comfortable anywhere. Always outside looking in, buffeted by partially-understood languages and cultural norms, often welcomed, sometimes tolerated, never accepted.

Many works begin in modular fashion, handmade on a small scale, using traditional techniques. Via repetition of process or form they become large, flexible, site-specific installations. Some make use of contemporary Chinese manufacturing as well as early photographic and modern digital processes, bringing together West and East in ways similar to those that are impacting our world to an extent we are only beginning to realize.
