Joan Mitchell Center Residency, 2020
Through self-directed and collaborative endeavors in optics and material studies, I explore ways in which artistic creation can reveal things that often go unseen. Each of my projects maintains a specific research interest and visual outcome, but all of the work sets out to deconstruct complex systems in order to create objects that probe current social and environmental issues through the lens of perception.”
