    Artist Statement

    I regard my drawings, sculptures, and collages as diagrams of other dimensions, of geology, of society, and of myself. These diagrams are an externalization of unperceivable realms. I see holes and lines in my work as portals for looking out to other dimensions. The lines in my work become knives, tearing the space and revealing other realms. Like a vent in geology, they are conduits for magma to surface, and eruption occurs through them.

    Most of my sculptures have spaces that seem to hold something. The boundary between interior and exterior can be eliminated, redefined, or blurred with colors and textures. I confront, check, and diagnose the diagrams and then disassemble them. After that, I reassemble them with tape, glue, or plaster bandages. These changed forms become other diagrams that lead me to transform them again. Each object that I create becomes a molecule, consisting of compound and decomposing into atoms.
