Artist Statement

Layered traces of time come up often in my work, much of which incorporates recycled materials as these items carry their own histories. Reusing materials also helps me escape excessive nostalgia as that item’s history is not lost, but becomes integral to its new place. Sometimes, the history is not directly incorporated, but imprinted on surfaces instead, which adds new possibilities or layers for presentation or dialogue.
