ARTIST STATEMENT
The most significant aspect of my work examines how paintings and sculptures function as things in motion and how they forge human networks and shared connections across economic boundaries. The laborious act of making connects me to the working class. However, my continued control over the distribution of the products of my labor
places me in a different category. My interest lies in how a working artist straddles both worlds and how this might suggest a bridge between labor and capital.
