Residency: October-November 2004
My work examines the relationships of individuals and their environments through ongoing spatial meditations that attempt to sculpt time and space, directly addressing consciousness and raising questions about subjectivity. I am concerned with the interaction of body and though. I use the body both as subject and medium. Drawing is an essential activity for me, for it is a powerful medium for the expression of both perception and concept. Its directness and meditative qualities allow me to explore ways of interacting with the viewer intensifying the awareness of the surrounding space.
