My ideas track and hold allegories of
philosophy, music and literature
which I then translate, transcribe or build into
objects, projects and installations
that speak in poetic narratives.
The work alludes to a gap in the moment
between a beginning and an aftermath.
The gap dismembers the puzzling bonds that transpire
when the unexpected happens while
with each other and their surroundings.
In making things,
ideas becomes distilled,
leaving shadows of past actions and
remainders of human presence.
The ephemeral, intangible and disappearing qualities of
history become captured in my work
through the presence of touch,
called out in haptic gesture and meticulous patterning .
Both awkward and elegant solutions reiterate
the performance of imperfection and the desire for resolve.
To quote Emerson, “Every touch should thrill”.
The things I make are the “first impression”.
From there, others are invited to get
to know the work better over time,
(not much different than a relationship, really).
Generosity of interpretation is laid bare for the viewer when I leave the work
and then new conversations can begin.
