"I've always found poetry in objects that convey multiple histories. Objects that through context and placement drastically change meaning. Braided rope, north American currency, and mattresses permeate my work for this reason. I traverse a multitude of paint applications and presentations to draw the viewer into an environment with each piece. This is done as a means to evince the power of the objects used and evoke curiosity in the cultural narratives that lie beneath them."
