NINTH FLOOR

Notes from the Artist: “My artwork uses landscape photography as a starting point for construction and interruption. In my work the ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photograph’s failure to encompass the physical site it represents. I am interested in the American Wilderness and issues of environmental conservation as well as modern architecture and design. My interest in the relationship between interior architecture and the natural world has also led to recent work that juxtaposes reclaimed drywall into outdoors and site-specific installations. A broad range of techniques and materials are used – photography, collage, sculpture, installation, video – in work that strikes a balance between abstraction and representation, landscape and architecture.”
