Rubber bands, plastic straws, paper napkins, and other various everyday household items are the basis of my artistic practice. In my work I strip utilitarian objects of their functions, repurposing them to create visceral experiences. Items with little visual intrigue are organized so as to have a powerful aesthetic impact.

The tension between the inherent uniformity of the mass-produced everyday materials I engage with and my subsequent arrangement of them drives my practice. My photographs, videos and sculptures borrow from the tradition of the Readymade as well as from the exalted subjectivity of Modernist painting and sculptures.

All work is available for sale. Photographs are archival pigment prints on fiber based paper. Some photographs also available as large scale vinyl banners.
