My practice places itself at the intersection of the range and limitations of language, both as a visual, formal construct as well as a conveyor of meaning. This intersection is characterized by the tension that exists between the capacities of language to both impart form as well as potential to meaning. It is this interplay between form and potential, orientation and performance that is the primary motive force behind the process of the practice as well as the work it produces.
As a performing phenomenon, language operates on both the individualistic as well as communal plane, situating the individual in a particular context and growing the vocabulary of that language around the individual. When multiplied, the interactions of these various contexts and individuated habits with respect to language can at times, understandably, be overwhelming. However, it is the variegated nature of this enterprise that is suggestive of an approach in which these concerns are received as elements which, when rearranged, repositioned and reorganized, have the capacity of growing an internal structure and logic specific to the work in question but capable of reflecting on a larger sphere of concerns.
The act of spatially repositioning linguistic conceptions and forms is then an approach characterized by making through rediscovering. It is the hope that in the rediscovery of the phenomenon, the various emotive and formal potentials of language can be unlocked anew.
