A central focus of my work is displacing time, scale, and material through working in various mediums to explore and examine transitory moments. I begin with a set of materials and observe the innate physical properties. The materials are then introduced to various elements that propel transformation. These reactions are examined and documented into specific forms including tangible material, light projections, and imagery. These documentations of material transformation are presented as abstractions. My practice is guided by an approach that examines material transformation and abstraction through process. Through the historical lens focusing on process, I find correlations to specific works of Richard Serra, Franz Kline, and Robert Rauschenberg. The works in the exhibition related to one another through process, material transformation and abstraction. As a result the exhibition created an abstract and temporal experience for viewers to explore as well as to become immersed in natural and formal phenomena.
