Artist Statement:

As a zero-waste, non-disciplinary artist, my work manifests in hybrid forms involving performance, installation, drawing, painting and street art. I interrogate and connect Theoretical Physics, Neuroscience and Psychology through creative praxis. To uncover the convergence of these categorically separate subjects, I generate art objects and experiences that reveal their interconnectivity. What are the impacts of human energy? How do all things trans-mutate? What, in our conscious or subconscious, binds us to systemic culture? In response to such mega-quandaries, I work to describe and disrupt systems and patterns on the singular, personal, level and on the collective, communal, level. I make physical and visual the acts, examinations and outcomes of patterning by creating objects and moments that explore the tensions of desire, frustration and change.
