My artwork is exceedingly idealistic, plural, and impractical. I reassemble patterns found on quotidian objects, spaces, and places. I place those patterns on objects that resemble what might be used, but cannot fathom that existence. Tolerating the flux and uncertainty of current contemporary life, the work makes meaning out of meaninglessness. Paper scraps, wood, damar resin – which weeps from trees, and the wax bees leave behind are the foundational ingredients of my work for this show. In my studio I find a use for once useful detritus. My own work gets chopped, cut and scraped into smaller bits only to get re-purposed into new works, repeatedly. Combining old and new, used and unused, these leftovers are built into an underlying system or grid. A grid that is at once broken and hopeful.
Event on Facebook for more images and a map.
Event on ArtSlant LA. After the show this is a great place to write reviews!
