Artist Statement

Sense of place is an underlying theme in my work. In early pieces, I used the chair form as a stand-in for a person, usually myself. Recently, Iíve turned to the relationship between furniture and walls. This work is more about what might have been than what actually is, about possibilities that otherwise would not happen. Iím not aiming for a fully resolved solution; I want viewers to find the humanity in the work through personal associations.
