Artist Statement

I apply a kind of weird spiritualism to the materials I find and work on… I like to think of them as having a first ‘life’. After they have outlived their usefulness and they are thrown away, abandoned, discarded or lost, they are rediscovered, and made new again… but not too new (they have to maintain a kind of ‘artifact’ feel for me). I like to think of the lost objects themselves as ‘stoked’ that they are becoming something else.

When I make my large scale paintings, or lost object installations there is a Zen feel to the process for me for a couple of reasons. I find the process very meditative and also aesthetically I am always trying to find a ‘balanced’ feeling in my work. I rarely start with a fully formed plan when I make things, and I only know a piece is finished when it feels balanced.
