Artist Statement

Sometimes while I am in a deep sleep and I awake suddenly, perhaps from a dream or a nearby noise, I find that my body has separated from my mind and my mind has separated from my vision. In this state of disconnected consciousness my comprehension is skewed and I can no longer distinguish my location. It is from this point of perceptual illusion that I am interested in making art. Whether through painting or site-specific installations, my work alters perception of space and time simultaneously disorienting and reorienting the viewer.
