Much of my work over the last fifteen years has used commonplace materials such as paper, bed sheets, underwear, books, and t-shirts, as well as the verbal and non-verbal language that surrounds us in our everyday lives. I have used lists and letters written by myself and by those I love, song lyrics that get stuck in my head, and words from books, advertisements, and other sources that gain new meaning through translation, recontextualization, and obliteration. Responding to my chosen materials both intellectually and intuitively, some of the things I explore through my work are my communications with loved ones, an art audience, and society at large, as well as the relationships between the internal self, the body, and nature.
