My newest body of work tries to fashion scraps into modest and humble metaphors—creating jungle gym geo-domes in paint, huts and precarious love shacks, paper constructions representing liminal spaces. These works hover between abstraction and representation, posit themselves as meager but earnest attempts at reconstruction, and respond to our current conditions that call for making-do with what is at hand.
