Artist Statement

While this isn't wrong, I've come to the point where I no longer wish my work to "interrogate" anything and rather am concerned with, in Vija Celmens' phrasing, letting "the material be the material." This is a sort of freedom. 

But also, this poem from Emily Pittinos says more about the work I'm trying to make now than anything clever I could write here.
