I make conceptual art. These are intimate spaces that explore emotional states too unwieldy to express in words alone. Some of my pieces combine interview, portraiture as well as my own writing.
Things we want to protect–whether from the elements, public view, theft, or maybe even easy access by ourselves—are best stored under cover. My boxes refer to the psychological wisdom of consulting our emotions for truth. Most of these objects are made from humble or familiar materials to keep distractions to a minimum.
My lifelong interest in combining word and image grew alongside the study of visual writers: Blake, Dante, and poets of the English Renaissance.
