As an interdisciplinary assembler, I construct narratives from moments of curiosity, absurdity and potential humor in happenstance. My impulse to collect and my desire to recycle is a search for connection and an attempt to collaborate with the unknown. Working between painting, sculpture and printmaking practices reveals allegorical relationships embedded in materiality. Stories are told in the cracks and creases, stains and rust of physical objects, layered with my own mark making. They become site-specific maps of a place, offering a form of communication that extends language. Focusing on the nuances within a vernacular, I question what is lost or can be transmitted through translations. Guided by a set of “what ifs,” I create a vocabulary of gestures that transcribe my findings in cyclical forms of destruction and repair. I locate my subjects in the possibilities presented in fragments of things faded, forgotten and old. They hide in plain sight: in daily lists, conversations, the paths I repeat, the windows I look through and the doors I open (and close). Much like a puzzle, traces of information imbue how I pair different processes and techniques to assorted ephemera. The results exist as questions, testing what can function in unexpected and precarious ways.
