STATEMENT

I make paintings and sculptures that attempt to preserve images of itinerant forms. My recent paintings depict familiar objects designed for travel in a state of pause through the use of still-life. In my sculptural work I utilize scagliola, a technique developed in ancient Rome to imitate rare marble using plaster, pigment, and animal glue. While the paintings preserve the often disposable objects they depict through a medium of immortalization, using scagliola is a way to concretize passing moments and an attempt at the continuation of a process that has nearly disappeared in its production.
