With equal parts comedy and tragedy the uncomfortable objects I make question our best efforts and reveal our frequent miscalculations. Inspired by half-finished housing developments, failed resolutions, canceled Pentagon projects, and D.I.Y. electricians I create sculptures that showcase the potential futility in our efforts. At all levels of our life, we are in constant pursuit of the best solutions, from personal fitness and desktop applications to the national political debate. By re-modeling this idealism my work questions our value systems, revealing ironic, contradictory and embarrassing cultural narratives.
The abstract forms in this exhibition include leather harnesses, inflatable mattresses, rubber prosthetics, hand-crafted clamps, ceramic weather conditions, green-washing theater props and alternative therapies for the body and mind.
