I aim to portray the tension between vision and reality, floating between illusion and actual space. Celebrating balance between the levity of child-like playfulness and the gravity of rebellious irreverence.
I enjoy investigating the relationship of conflicting influences- beauty lies within the space of connection and entanglement, and our relationship with the unfinished, disregarded, inevitable, and wild contradictions of living; trying to find order that does not subscribe to the rules of logic.
Elements that inspire my work are celestial bodies, landscapes, architecture, and spaces -both physical and simulated, and as they relate to the realities and fantasies of ourselves and the elements around us. How do we live in these spaces of opposition and modification, and how do they form identities? How do we define structure within our own systems, and find language to communicate this never-ending progression?
