Artist Statement

 

The physical properties of material and the discipline of attention drive my work. I see art and life as inseparable and to sustain a creative stance is vital for my community and myself. My content and form are aligned with my goal to demystify art as a practice and as a cultural experience. The forms I use establish reciprocity with the audience: process art, installation, performance, site-specific art, collaboration and interactivity. The content is layered and open to interpretation.  All these factors challenge how I make art:  the materials and venue I choose as well as art as object, authorship, temporality and permanency.
