Expressing material transitions between liquid and solid states, my work combines seemingly disparate elements into integrated wholes.
Paint, waste, plastics, pigments, dust, stones, sand, dye and earth are mixed with concrete and cast into solid forms. These forms/sculptures become the subjects for my paintings and are subsequently broken up and ground down into hand-dyed canvases.
The paintings and sculptures build a dialogue between transhistorical technologies, transitional earth cycles and the contemporary challenge to integrate problematic materials into sustainable/functional networks.
In the installation of my artworks, the exhibition space becomes an 'empty stage,' where active discussion, talks, community gatherings and performances happen.
