My artworks express duality: connection / disconnection, presence / absence, communication / miscommunication, natural / artificial. Working conceptually, often with language, communication and understanding I utilize different formats such as sound installation, installation, performance, photography and video. Thank you for your condolences moves between professional and romantic modes of digital contact: writing, re-writing, re-thinking, re-interpreting and questioning. Playing with rhythm, repetition and onomatopoeia, I explore the possibilities within simplistic, open language. Flowers explores originals, replicas and copies. What is gained and lost from each version? The artwork questions these concepts inside and outside of the art world. Continuing this contemplation, a new mixed media installation will be exhibited as part of Ipsofacto.
