Statement

Created out of materials that are commonly used to build sound and steady structures, the works I create are constantly under threat of collapsing and breaking. Drywall, plywood, plaster and other construction materials are placed together utilizing their ends, edges and weight. Each piece is meticulously balanced to create compositions that conflate structures and ruins. The works exist without permanence, displaying its vulnerability to the viewer and the environment. Watching an unstable sculpture brings forward our discomfort with change but aims to shift the perspective of loss. The condition of these works give form to the intricate relationships we develop with the things we value.
