Fellowships 2015

Utilizing sculptural strategies, a strong dedication to craft and work ethic, humor, popular culture and my skills as a metalsmith and fiber artist, I maintain a hybrid practice that explores sculpture, craft, and moving image.

A three-ring circus:

Arena one.
As an advocate for gay rights, equality, and myself, I create sociopolitical works that question our relationship to gender roles/stereotypes and sexuality. Each of these works begins with a question to society and to myself.

Arena two.
I create works that explore the ambiguity of materials, scale, and color, and employ repetition as a form of meditation. I am interested in material limitations, the gendering of materials and processes, and the debunking of craft vs. fine art.

Arena three.
I use video as a method of recording intimate performance, my process as a maker of objects, and as a tool for collaboration.
