"At the oak table, beliefs were expressed, not imposed. This is how I remember it. In this space I knew I could openly express what I felt and what I thought. It was a space that encouraged fluidities, multiple experiences, juxtaposed narratives, but, above all free communication.
In other parts of my world, however, I encountered a much different attitude. A didactic stance with a linear direction and an uncompromising infliction with no possibility for engagement or true opportunity for disagreement.

A tightly confining narrative."
Proceed with Caution, 2001
"Breakfast, at the table, then to school. After school, reconvening at the table. Schoolwork, discussion, conflict, agreement, sadness, laughter, all the human emotions, including dinner.
One is heard. One heard. Communication, but also the failure to communicate.
Agreement, but disagreement. One attempted to consider other people’s perspectives, other people’s experiences."
"So perhaps in some way my art, my installations especially, are a simple, yet forceful rejection of such confining narratives; an affirmation of the freedom of thought that I first experienced around the oak table. My attempt, however, is to build upon and go beyond the limitations of even those first dialogues.

I aim to invite individuals to enter a carefully configured yet inhabitable space, beyond the frailties of the verbal language; one that acts as a space and a vehicle for different perspectives.

Through a deliberate juxtaposition of materials with specific qualities, the participant is encouraged to interpret the inter-relationships without prescribing a fixed emotional or intellectual direction. This allows the participants to define and form their own narrative from the experience."

Where does it really begin?
"I find Art and Literature to be of the same nature, especially poetry; there is a similar quality of ambiguity that is open to individual interpretation."
Untitled – 1999
"Living through life, things happen that interrupt what you’re doing and an alternate path becomes visible. I started teaching first and then, through working in design and with ancient artifacts, I arrived at art as the language which I understood most and which provided the right vehicle for what I wanted to communicate."
“Life is an interesting practice.”

"What the artist sees,
is often more important
than what they make."
"Sculpture allows me to utilize a three dimensional mode of thinking where each surface can register multiple aspects of the work. The viewer's perspective also creates other compositions of these elements."
“To have a cohesive view of the world there must be an interest in all its components.”
“How things are depends on Who you are.”
