artist's statement




The process and the work become the same.  The process involves moving between the environment and the studio.  In

the environment, I travel, walk, ask questions, research, collect, document, and rearrange using installation, audio, and other media, etc.  The actions, interventions, and installations are documented and then left to become ruin, which, when seen at various intervals define their own creation-time, and visually reference their original state.  Many pieces are revisited and recorded again – the process repeats over time. 

In the studio, a second form of physical memory takes place using combinations of documentation, drawing, photography, audio, collections, and various forms of mixed media layered in rhythms, morphing in and out of each other.  The studio work is the final result, or the physical heap leftover at the end, reflecting the art making process.

​It is significant that the existence of the work of art with reference to its aura is never entirely separated from its ritual function.
