My work creates unexpected moments of precariousness. I use metallic, iridescent, and fluorescent acrylics, textures that lift the paint from the canvas, and a variety of industrial plastics which add dimensionality to the surfaces. I create work which collapses clear distinctions via aufhebung, the negation of negation: both painting and sculpture, both presence and absence, both expectation and result. The goal is the substantiation of imagination: fooling the eye into seeing things it never imagined could exist, and then going beyond to ask for willing participation in a different way of seeing the world around us, externally and internally.
