Artist Statement

I am a record-keeper of objects destined to be disposed. Whether utilitarian or sentimental, I document a moment of these objects’ lives in either literal or abstracted ways. By recording disposable objects with archival tools, I reflect on my personal interaction and consumption of resources, and ask questions about material value.

Through a variety of print media such as silkscreen, lithography, intaglio, and relief printing, I maintain my records in the form of prints, books, collages, soft sculptures, or installations. Whether printing the physical object, itself, exposing it onto a screen, imprinting its texture on stone, or simulating its form and shape in space, it is the unique mark and shape of objects that I strive to document, and I use printmaking to mediate the mark.
