My practice centers around the themes of sustainability, autonomy, and artistic identity/agency, mining the problems and mythologies that tie these things together in their various conceptions. Drawing from an interest in landscape, land use, and the politics of the built environment, my recent sculptures play with shifts in scale to become simultaneously objects of contemplation, metaphorical spaces, and models or proposals for more expansive projects.
