Artists Statement

My work explores the re-presentation of ideas as constructed, visual, oral and conceptual stimuli, considering the associated histories of these ideas through both intellectual and emotional responses. The works form part of an ongoing and open ended inquiry that examines the overlapping function of concept and physical structure within my practice. This inquiry focuses on the relational and oppositional issues of analytical (conscious) - intuitive (subconscious) intellect and experiments with… Continue

Hey Karl: yes, that's exactly what I was thinking. That some of your feelings as an arts professional make their way into the work from that perspective - the boundary pieces seemed infused with that awareness around the artificial presentation of objets d'art without being cynical about it...the thing itself and the vehicle/structure/dressing that presents it are held together in a neutral equal balance for contemplation. I guess that's what's interesting to me about it, that I can contemplate both separately and equally and shift back and forth. That's a fine balance to calibrate without other emotions filtering into it. Plus, I appreciate the slightly rough aesthetic, that you're not precious with it, it adds an honesty to it to have it speak to a street aesthetic (literally!) rather than something turned toward greater artifice. Ya, I'm diggin the thinkin....and curious where you take it next. Cheerios!

i like little venice, nice piece. and takes me back.
the boundary pieces are curious, the awkwardness of that demarcation is really pushed to the forefront while the invitation waits just beyond - interested to see where you take them. plus they and the earlier floor works seem to comment not only on individual/social spaces but also on gallery spaces and the space of presentation of the (art) object, the 'staging' areas for thought, etc. and you have this minimalist structural aesthetic that frames some very loaded expression in other works (4 walks, recycled stuff, etc). thx, it is interesting to engage with some of your ideas. cheers!
