Artist Statement

Using a surface to define a form inevitably creates separation. This separation—above and below, inside and outside—gives a new language to the form: that which is seen, and that which is hidden. This place of division is where I like to focus my work. The sculptures are not an attempt to reveal secrets, but a means to investigate the process and motivations behind the creation of boundaries.
