Artist Statement

when objects converge in a space

they start a dialogue of their lives

their lives become entangled with your life, your memory, your meaning

objects are the narrators of memory

objects hold meaning

I ask myself the question how do objects talk to each other?

I seek to excavate the spaces and analyze these objects

in hope of contemplation and examination

for a moment where my art becomes artifact
