Data flows to and fro across the porous borders of our conscious and unconscious selves, our senses and minds. We probe that data for evidence of identity, meaning, truth and certainty.
Our main, if only tool for this is language which separates then combines data and shapes our paradigms. But what do processes and materials have to say?
I am trying to get lost in a labyrinth of production to investigate notions of equivalence and because I like making art that has something to reveal to me about the ways we search for understanding.
Processes and materials separate and combine in sculpture, sculpture generates drawings, drawings become materials and coalesce in sculpture... I carve, cut, saw, grind, polish, rub, trace, and sandblast. I work with stone, paper, charcoal, glue, ochre, iron filings, cement and dust.
