All that said, I have revised my statement and it is here (below) for you to read. At this sliver of a moment in eternity, I am finding that my relationship to the living spirit within materials and my love of beauty and god is what inspires my work.....and a little more elaboration below.
I am a process artist. My approach to the work is intuitive in nature; I collaborate with chance, accidents and impermanence. I include marks of time and wear, emphasizing beauty in imperfection. I work with a wide variety of materials including: organic and found objects, clothing, plastic, dirt, and paint.
My work is inspired by transformation, how life is flux, that one thing is actually many things in a state of infinite change; examining the fragile yet powerful brevity of life and the innate connection between all that is. I work with materials in a symbiotic nature, I do not force the materials in to submission instead I present them as they are, allowing them to reveal their potential transformation through the act of observation. I see myself as co-creator with materials, myself also as a material and a tool.
My inspiration is unbound from category, thus flowing freely between artistic disciplines and forms. The thread of artistic inquiry and intention is what connects the work, whether it is performance, painting or installation.
