Notions that I have been immersed in, and drawn to are signs, connections and communication. I feel disposed to identify these signs throughout the world. The eternal return of sense and production is a pattern, a system that can be deciphered to some degree. For so long I looked outside of myself for these methodical patterns that tend to reach out and consume or indicate my attention, but what I have to realize and acknowledge is that I am my own system and I have a language that can be used to translate my mind.
My objective is to research my ideas, passions, issues, desires, and go beyond the object of desire. What is seen and can be interpreted is partially shaped by individual experience. This is something that I have materialized through school, understanding that the scopes of perspective are infinite.
Language is vital to my experimental practice and helps me stay upright within my own art production. Throughout my own writings I have discovered symbols that occur quite often. I have come to see these symbols as pieces of a signature or even a key that can be used to decipher my own anthropological cultural codification.
I am leaving markers or breadcrumbs that can be used to retrace my art practice.
The objects I make are elementary, (in a post-minimal way) and unusual yet familiar. Adopting everyday objects and simple materials, I am thinking about formalism within my work and the ability to transport the mind into faded traditions, to bring old memories to light as well as feel experiences that have long past. Attracted to process and the will that comes from my artistic self, I am compelled to unfurl my ideas through the use of uncomplicated form, matter and materials.
I use logic, tools, artifacts, toys, and instruments that can be found within a cultural or political structure not because of their content and totality, not to mock academia or to rebel but to use artistic research to analyze the decisions that have allowed certain people to create, the ideology that we have allowed to be in place.
I wish to disrupt the common deconstruction procedure; and re-activate the senses, rewrite, with pure force and pure action. What I represent is consumed and fueled by this raw passion of challenging not only the institutional system but the complexities of man.
Being within some sort of institution, like a school, for the majority of my life, I have always been looking for new ways to equip myself, for the likely chance that I can break free from the structures that have always determined and directed my existence.
