As a visual artist, I create works of art under the broad topic of communication. I am specifically interested in codes, hidden meanings, the evolution of language, and the extinctions of languages throughout history. The physical qualities of glass such as fragility, distortion and ice-like mimicry play into these concepts of communication explored through my sculpture, installations and prints.
The artworks I create are extensions of those thoughts, often translated into abstract visual-reinterpretations, such as “The Space Between,” a large glass installation comprised of various glass wavelength forms, or found in forms of sculptural record keeping such as “Communication Lost,” which is an artwork of modular glass forms created to hold information of extinct/endangered languages.
Presently, I am paring ideas of communication with identity and memory, and focusing on how those larger concepts may play out in the physical visualizations of sound and voice.
