artist statement

My work primarily focuses on large-
scale sculpture and installation which
uses glass as a material for artistic
expression, but also includes works in
stone, steel, wood and works on paper.
Sculpturally, I want to use the inherent
properties of glass to convey notions
which are not traditionally associated with the material, such as weight and mass, or its ability to have raw gutty surfaces that can speak to concepts of entropy and loss. I love the presence and dichotomy created by a material that is at once visually light but physically dense. A primary referent in my work is the man-made object. Whether this is architecture, industrial design, landscape modification or small objects of personal significance I use the world of the created object to comment on notions of personal history, experience, perception and memory.
