Artist Statement 

My work attests to the existence of a place within and without the world(s) we recognize in ourselves and our surroundings. Ineffable gaps, ambiguities, confusions, and hopeless predicaments materialize as impossible knots, holes, webs, and inhabitants (or maybe apparitions) drawn from memories and lost/reconstituted family history. These materializations provide the opportunity to untangle, excavate, unwind, rewind, bury, foretell, forget, find a path forward or back.
