“I have been further exploring cycles of containment and material permanence. The foundation of this inquiry is representational paintings of found objects—artifacts of craft and domesticity—and the detailed composition within each subject. In abstracting such objects, I became interested in relationships created among objects in their collective visual archive.

My work incorporates found objects/subjects into imagined worlds, suggesting a narrative quality to these somewhat familiar forms. Whereas my work has felt like an archaeological dig and display, I am now reimagining the context of my subjects. Throughout the progression of my work, a connection between sculpture and painting is apparent, and is a thread I would like to further investigate.”
