By deploying lightweight, synthetic materials in site-responsive installations and constructed drawings, I foreground internal formal and conceptual contradictions: cohesion and fragmentation, balance and vertigo, minuet and jitterbug. Through cutting, layering, stapling, and stretching plastic garbage bags, Mylar, optical plastics, and mosquito netting, I examine the nature of shadow, light. and visual ambiguity. The resulting abstractions evoke narratives ranging from the theatrical to the forensic.

My aim is to choreograph events of perceptual incident. My hope is that this conflation of disparate parts — mark, shadow, geometry, gesture, concord, dissonance — results in some sort of vertiginous whole.

My profound interest in film, especially the uneasy territory of film noir, informs the work.
