Artist Statement | Locavore Installation |
The Locavore series explores the concept of unrestricted progress, change and reinvention. There is no stopping point to this work. It exists in different "states," finding new meaning in each new iteration; continual progression, both formally and conceptually. Found objects are brought into the studio. These materials have their original purposes changed – reinvented through new juxtapositions and this open-ended approach creates new relationships when combined with other paintings and drawings. These formal arrangements, including the space that surrounds it, are photographed printed at large scale. After this large print is hung in the space, the work restarts. The previous "state" now sets the stage for the movement and change. The materials are modified to either strengthen or undermine the original arrangement, to create a dynamic space wavering between realism and abstraction.

Artist Statement | Viewer Discretion Advised |
Entertainment, role-playing, rules, control, collaboration and authorship are part of the complicated video game equation. Humans are drawn to the viscera and inappropriate, peek through our fingers to watch. Games have have infinite possibilities. Moments repeat, yet each game produces it's own unique experience. The act of drawing has the same open-endedness. In the performance the two ideas came together. The player changed the virtual landscape, forcing the "one drawing" to change the mark making and composition. The drawing became densely layered, which complicated both the player and viewer’s experience. Active vs. passive is no longer an obvious hierarchy. Everything commingles; the game, drawing and shadows layering on the walls.

Artist Statement | Everyone has something to hide or All we need now is another gloryhole |
Everyone has something to hide or All we need now is another gloryhole existed in two states - a static form (no performance) and a dynamic form (during performance). The installation, fabricated out of a combination of found objects and artworks, became a stage for performances. These erratic actions lasted an hour, once a week during the span of the exhibition. This changed the composition and structural integrity, growing increasingly unkempt as time progressed. Time for each performance was held by an old egg timer (it's age contributed to time inaccuracy). Actions during the performances were not predetermined or rehearsed, but crafted in the spirit of the moment, with the artist reacting to the energy (or lack thereof) of the participants.
