i do not claim to be an actual artist because the objects i create have no deep meaning or story. the objects displayed are the result of the disposed of or often forgotten items around me and how i interact with them. i personally thrive in chaotic spaces, like my garage, where i store most of my collected garbage. Collecting interesting items, anticipating uses that may never come, tripping over clutter and endlessly searching for needed items are the norm. Mildly inconvenient, I embrace this environment as a reflection of what daily goes on in my head. this collection is an attempt to turn my collection of clutter into something visually interesting as an excuse to validate its existence in my physical space. Playfully, yet strategically, reorganized and repositioned trash that i am tortured and cradled by, willingly.
