My art practice has many anchor points, but generally revolves around the process and effects of time, particularly the fragments of time as details of a larger picture. Time is a set of complex frequencies and angles often viewed as a commodity, something of beauty, or full of anxiety. I believe the lengthy process required to create my artwork attempts to deconstruct and analyze such views. Through the art of iteration, a new moment or a unique characteristic of a moment is created, shifting the emphasis from the result to the process.

On the other hand, I am also interested in attributing new meaning to each piece while going beyond the literal analysis of materials. The fragility of the hand-cut fabric, time, technique, and labor are all part of the content while infusing a “slowness” that finds its counterpart in the amount of time it takes a viewer to comprehend the artwork.
