Using mixed media and repetitive forms of translation, my work explores themes of the metaphysical and the occult while investigating how the art making process can transcend into a spiritual practice. Using wood, fibers, glass, paper and found object I create sculptural collages, ritual objects and installations that express these ideas. Using tedious and time-consuming methods, I focus my energies onto objects while I am creating them to activate and impart ritual significance. Taking influence from the absurdity of religion, I challenge the viewer to question my beliefs in these object’s power, hoping to exist in a grey space between fantasy and reality. My intuition is usually right, I like to say I’m psychic and then tell people I’m only half kidding. I’m not kidding.
