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.

Birthright, 2019

"Birthright" consists of two similar forms, each with superficial differences. Both are royal blue on one side & purple on the reverse, giving them a different appearance based on how they are viewed. One is elevated above the other for no apparent reason, reflecting on social privilege & inequality.
