October 18 - November 16, 2019
Reception: October 25 | 5-7 pm
The Solarium Gallery at Houghton House

Getting beyond conscious intention to make coherent constructions from the irrational juxtaposition of disparate parts is the impetus for my work. Assemblages are constructed from fragments of various materials that evoke their origins while making new sense of things. The defining quality of the work is a sense of anxiety, and a dark sense of humor, presenting precarious situations where a threatened loss of balance is kept under control.
