“Internal dialogues emerge as I probe the boundaries between self and the environment. Although much of my art practice is conceptual and idea-driven, I felt the need to collapse the distance between thought and no-thought for this bespoke installation. The work that arose was an intuitive response to the space and the ephemeral nature of reality. Working without a plan, I followed my body as it made relational gestures.  I trusted my response to the material in-hand. Subtexts poked through as I worked-- lines of thought related to isolation, the pandemic, rebirth-- and these concepts were quickly folded into the work as I moved from wall to wall. Alongside 35 others in the space, the process of tearing apart, joining, and affixing became an unrehearsed process of co-becoming.”
