From the Artist's Website:
My artistic practice takes various forms. The drawings require presence and quiet, both in the making and viewing, which in turn, opens up space for thought. Prior to and during the making of these drawings, I was thinking a great deal about time and how it is measured, experienced, and valued. This has led me to consider notions of labor, both artistic and institutionalized. In both product and production, the question of "form" seems crucial. Often the most quiet, unobtrusive forms have the most powerful influence on everyday life. The "spaces" of the form become a place for the individual to construct him or herself for another entity.
These forms also point to a type of mapping of bodies, places, and exchanges. Mapping, when applied to alternate forms like literature, opens up new possibilities for understanding language and our relationship to it. In the case of the photographs, the oil stains become markers of a machine and an activity. My work is an interrogation into the less visible structures of everyday life. I feel it is important to make connections between everyday life and artistic practice as a means to understand both in new ways.
