Artist Statement

My work explores the cracks and crevices that develop through both renovation and deterioration of buildings or architectural structures. The work is site-specific and thrives in the cracks of cement walls, unfinished surfaces, neglected corners, or other imperfect spaces. I use of materials usually used in cosmetics or personal hygiene. This is intended as a comment about people's absurd tendency to fix the surface of an issue, rather than core of the problem.  These unlikely materials are used to create illogical repairs.   In the end, the work in fact enhances or accentuates the flaws rather than fixing them.
