Artist Statement: 

My work is an investigation into materials and processes, and how these elements coalesce in the realm of industry, structure, aesthetics, and abstraction. These constructions visually reference as a figure, as an individual, and as an element within our social structure. My perspective on the importance of different construction-grade materials as a medium for conceptual commentary has allowed me to investigate how our dependence on function and structure can be harnessed as an aesthetic venue. I am also attempting to show that the utilization of these materials and the processes that make, cultivate, or employ them are often necessary within our society, can enter political discourse, and yet are rarely relished as an artistic edifice.
