My own practice stems from my belief in the ability of a basic curiosity to set a groundwork for a complex system of interconnected facts. Each of these facts is quite mundane, or ordinary, but through their cross-weaving, I aim to emerge with a field of artworks which may arrive at new understandings. Knowledge which is derived from the space between divergent fields of study, which necessarily combines empirical with subjective. A knowledge which in turn invites viewers into the experience of a progression from wonder –– curiosity –– realization –– reflection –– and finally to the possibility of understanding. I think it is important not to determine understanding as an absolute, but rather a potential. It is at the stage of understanding which things begin to become slippery, and I would like to embrace this moment which science rushes past in order to reach the goal of undisputed knowledge. Reflection and it’s fellow traveler contemplation, I believe, are what keep art and it’s audience from sliding into solely objective thought. This process can be achieved through my practice, if viewers are allowed the time to regain that crucial stage of curiosity –– this state where questions intertwine before they have the chance to be answered. I hope to share with them this moment that is so often rationalized away, and in doing so, show what further possibilities are available in the unseen space between fields.
