"I suspect that our built environment is patterned after the subconscious. My work relies on excavating some of these "symptoms of life" from the kinds of space and objects we place between us and our architecture. The intimate domain of the home is a fertile landscape to draw from when assembling my ideas.  Furniture is often my subject, due to its close proximity to the body. 

Not being a fan of "new" I target the very old vices and virtues we harbour.

This exhibition will dig into the historically familiar, . . .to produce even more familiar things, sometimes difficult things we've seen many times but refuse to recognized.

Through a combination of overt re-pairs or subtle re-inventions my goal is to coax them back into the present visible."
