Various media and ideas meet in my practice where the studio process and resultant detritus are embraced. Through investigations of location and scale, in allowing for the unexpected and utilizing the unintentional, engaging situations are possible.
The vitrine insert, leftover from my previous installation for Historiographic at Harbourfront, emptied of its original intent but not its inherent qualities and with lighting still in place, dominates my studio. For over a year it has been a site for building and compiling, setting the stage for an evolution of ideas through the play of materials and light. Nothing is considered foreign to the process
The work intentionally confounds the perception of scale for the viewer through an ambiguous or skewed context. The constant is the sequential, the back and forth, the ricochet of ideas and process.
