As a navigational method, my work investigates material boundaries, systems of circulation, and notions of value. Within these inquiries, I construct sculptures, drawings, collages, and prints that mine the shifting frameworks of our built and natural environments, as well as, the facets and rituals of queer identity. At its core, my work seeks to locate and jostle solidified material constructs to allow for new perspectives to shift into focus.
In my sculptural work, I often collect and transform found objects that range from architectural forms, urban infrastructure, and utilitarian tools to household, personal, and natural elements. I grapple with the material histories and the inherent paradoxes and failures embedded within these recontextualized objects through processes and methods of fabrication. I distill, polish, layer, reframe and assemble materials and objects to alter surface tensions and to construct new relationships and narratives. Alongside this, I also produce process-based drawings, prints, and works on paper that reference compromised units of measurement and moments of reconfiguration. Forms of desire, care, and repair are also interwoven throughout my works and decipher a senses of identity. Collectively, my works offset and oscillates between realms of materiality allowing for new definitions to unfold.
