I describe what I do as an artist in four basic actions: collection, curation, wrapping and revision. These activities result in the construction of sculptural forms that relate to the scale of the human body. As forms, they are physically precarious, often defying gravity or off balance. With these works I aim to create conceptual ambiguity, allowing for an open-ended experience for the viewer to linger and consider the complexity.
Fit, my Masters Fine Art Exhibition, delineates two distinct spaces out of the same sculptural intervention with the architecture of the gallery. As an artwork with a front and back, the installation was designed to complicate the categories of space and form, to open up the experience of the work, and broaden its possible meanings.
