ARTIST'S STATEMENT
My work explores the poetic implications of recycled and discarded material. Investigated both for its formal beauty and reference to the excess of waste in our culture, it takes the shape of makeshift shelter structures- tents, blankets, awnings, and organic forms- garish botany, mini-mountains. Social conscience impels me to believe that the remaking of objects with trash calls attention to its proliferation in our environment and removes it, if only modestly, from the waste system.
