Using physical elements as variables, I examine the methods of interpretation, correction, and regulation of mechanisms of thought and attempt to trigger confrontations with the methods by which such mechanisms are constructed or fabricated.
Every object I use in my artistic practice is a mere variable and are optionally exchangeable. My methodological experimentation is a means of channeling the existential anger that plagues us as human beings. But recognizing this anger, I choose to be an optimist as I explore ways of seeking interesting or funny aspects within the scourge of the banal.
Our divided selves warrant a dominant will, one that tries to program our actions and choices. My observations and reactions to the complexities and paradoxes of our world find expression in my work. I am able to navigate this world through the inquiry and exploration in my art.
