I am fascinated by the development of space. With my work, I look to interpret space and structure through physical and emotional layers. By presenting incomplete junctions of materials juxtaposed with recognizable structural elements, this work is a reminder of the lack of permanence that exists within our constructed realities. My use of color, space, angles and movement are all meant to trigger some amount of emotional discomfort amongst the structural presence.
