NEW WORK: 

My work addresses political & social issues through concept-based work that is consistently well-crafted & thoughtfully planned. Utilizing architectonic grids, systems, & structures, the spatial compositions examine how structures facilitate &/or prohibit access to opportunity, autonomy and equity. My art promotes restructuring practices in more productive ways.

While my work is often prompted by experience & what I see around me, my ideas are conveyed through a more universal language, allowing the viewer to relate their own ideas & experiences within the framework I create in my art. My work explores social, racial, & gender constructs, both critiquing & celebrating a broader context.

Underpinning, 2019

“Underpinning” shows two iterations of a grid system, 1 that is supported structurally & a 2nd that has been stretched, distorting the geometry. The work examines what happens if a form is supported, & what happens if it is stretched thin, illustrating a social divide & the need to support all.
