About the Artist
I make large-scale installations and small works from natural and leftover materials. I've used hundreds of dead trees, thousands of bike tubes, zillions of strips of Mylar rescued from used bubble envelopes, tires and shoes. I explore their properties until a design emerges, which is typically minimal, incongruous and whimsical. The work results in exposing our unconscious relationship to nature or subconscious relationship to society.
My work addresses conservation, consumerism, notions of value and attachment through sculpture, installations and jewelry made from already existing materials as well as digital photography and short videos.I've used thousands of discarded bike tubes, zillions of salvaged Mylar strips from mailing envelopes, dozens of yards of recycled City water pipe, hundreds of dead trees, shards of dried mud or twisty vines to create works that ask the viewer to reconsider what is meaningful.
