Hey everyone; it’s been a busy few weeks. I’m happy to give you all some exciting updates:
My work will be represented by the Patrajdas Contemporary Gallery from Ogden, Utah from November 7-10 at the San Diego Contemporary Art Fair in California. The art fair will be at: Balboa Park Activity Center, 2145 Park Boulevard, San Diego, CA for those of you in the area. This is my first big art fair, and I’m so grateful to Patrajdas for representing me at the event.
Darby Campbell, a middle Tennessee photographer and Middle TN State University alumna, recently took some time to create a time-lapse video of my working process. Thank you, Darby, for a fantastic video! Check it out below to see the entire process of creating a paper sculpture installation:
I use paper to create a world of fiction that challenges the viewer to suspend disbelief and venture into my fabricated reality. By layering paper I am able to build intriguing land formations that mimic viral colonies and concentric sound waves. These strange landmasses contaminate and infect the surfaces they inhabit transforming the space into something suitable for their gestation. Towers of paper and color jut into the viewer's space inviting playful interactions between the viewer and this conceived world. These constructions question the notion of microbial outbreaks and their similarity to the visual representation of sound waves, transforming them into something more playful and inviting.
