My work transforms the white wall and public environment with large-scale sculptures and interactive installations. I couple an intense building vocabulary with a subtle sense of poetry harkening back to my roots related to homesteading. A contextualization of pastoral materials foregrounds moral issues of subsistence amid urban and cosmopolitan surroundings. The spaces often compare and contrast industry and function with self sufficiency and one’s most basic needs. A relation to the body in scale and intention is evident, while all the parts are hand-made to illustrate the DIY notion of the homestead.
