artist statement

My work engages with the passage of time and the ways in which both found and created objects can preserve moments in time. Objects can serve as vessels for ever-evolving personal sentiments. Found materials are used to draw out and lay bare the personal yet often unknown histories of both their previous owner and the journey of the item itself. By repurposing found items and reproducing my own everyday personal effects in my work, I preserve my subjects and create memorials to the mundane. Through their transformation, the memorialized objects are given a new life to exist as an artwork. By doing so, I express and resist the erosion of time on the objects and my connections to them. The inclusion of found and created possessions connects the individual narrative at play in my work with the anonymized pasts of my working materials.
