“Repetition and discovery are the guiding forces. The repetition that generates from my practice is indirect, fragmented and contradictory, breakdown and reinforcement, echo and decay.”
“I am fascinated by our confounding inability to describe the raw visual experience. What are we seeing when we really think about it and how did we miss it before? The objects I make don’t exactly try to answer the question but perhaps succeed in illustrating it.”
