Charcoal Drawing 'Matter' with Hinge Gallery at MDW Fair, Chicago, 2012
Through my work I don't presume to fully understand or define language and its effects on human thought and communication. What drives me instead is the thrill of exploring its endless malleability. If meaning can be shifted so profoundly, then any statement, however commonplace, contains the potential for its own unraveling. Rather than focusing my work on the explanation of these contradictions, I’m learning how to manipulate them into a barrage of dissonance and infinite feedback.
In this way I can question the validity of discourse by focusing on the experience of obsession itself.
