Artist Statement

I am interested in themes of nostalgia and inherited histories and how we interpret memory. To explore these concepts, I use a variety of media as I feel the very sense of nostalgia is fluid and ever changing and must be addressed by different methods. Bronze, chrome, neon, etched stainless steel, animated short film, and delicate collaged tissue—all act as a memory conduit. Through this broad material exploration, my work is a contemplation on the detritus from previous eras and its re-contextualized meaning and significance applied post fact by modern society.
